Adopt a Grandparent Fun PatchQuick View
Your girls can go beyond a visit to a nursing home, assisted living or veteran’s facility. Help them get more involved by adopting a grandparent. Schedule regular troop visits or write letters so the girls can connect. Plan a few activities. Perhaps a movie or game night will be fun for all. A fun patch reminds them that they made a connection!
Fairy House Build Fun PatchQuick View
Your Girl Scouts will have so much fun using their imagination to build fairy houses! Try this fun, no prep activity on your next camping trip. The only instruction you give your girls is to stay in designated areas (in camp site or on paths, not in the woods) and to use items they find in nature to build a fairy house. Let them know they can build any structure they think a fairy would live in. Allow enough time for them to be creative. If you have a large group covering several campsites, take a hike to look for the fairy houses. Your girls will beam with pride as their fairy houses are discovered and will have fun showing off the different ideas they had. Older girls might enjoy going around while the younger ones sleep to sprinkle a little glitter over the fairy houses. (Make sure to clean up the glitter before leaving.) The younger girls will be delighted to see that fairies stopped in to visit. Make sure to check with the camp director to find out if it’s ok to leave the fairy houses set up for others to find or if they must be dismantled and the materials scattered before leaving.
Not going camping or to an outdoor spot for this fun activity? Let the girls get creative with craft supplies at a troop meeting instead. Their fairy houses will be a great addition to a garden, flower pot or just a decoration.
However your girls decide to build their fairy houses, this colorful Fairy House fun patch is sure to please your Girl Scouts!
