Christmas time is coming nearer!

6 11 2010

So the Guides made Christmas tree decorations using polystyrene balls, pins, beads and sequins. The decorations turned out to be lovely!

We had intended to spraypaint the polystyrene balls gold, before decorating them, however we made an important discovery! Polystyrene does not like spraypaint. At least, it does not like the spraypaint that we had at the meeting. See for yourself!

Finally, I have some very important news to announce. Jamie, Linda and Jessica have all finished their entire Discoverer’s Challenge! Well done! I am very proud of you!

Jamie was also appointed as the Seconder of the Kingfisher Patrol. We look forward to seeing your leadership skills develop, Jamie.

P.S. On the 19th of November our end-of-year campfire will be happening. It is being organised by Shari as part of her Chief’s Challenge. All parents and siblings are invited to come join us. This is going to be an awesome event. Don’t miss out!
