This evening Linda, Jessica and Lauren linked up from Brownies and we enrolled them as Guides! Welcome to our Guide Company, girls! We held a link-up ceremony for some of our older Guides as well, as we hadn’t done this at their enrolment ceremony.

After the enrolment, we discussed campfire blankets and the girls had an opportunity to look at their Guider’s (my) campfire blanket. While looking at all the badges sewn onto the campfire blanket, we discussed past guiding events, camps and fun days. We looked at the different regional badges and guide patrol emblems. We talked about Patrol Pennants. The girls were very interested in the old Brownie uniform, with straps attached to a skirt instead of a sash!

We then moved on to our next activity. We are working towards completing clause 5 of the Discoverer’s Challenge Arts and Crafts Flash: “Make three articles using different natural materials eg. leaf prints, bark rubbing, grass weaving, sand art, shells, seaweed.” This evening we made book covers using leaf prints. We covered leaves in paint, pressed them down on the paper and Voila! we had beautiful leaf prints!

Next week is Interest Badge Day! Remember to phone one of the testers to make an appointment to be tested for Interest Badges! We’ll be making shell picture frames in between the testing – don’t miss out!
