Thanksgiving Cards

Our girl scout troop made Thanksgiving cards this week to give to someone in need. The individual in need could be a homeless person, an elderly neighbor, or a new child at school. The idea about creating the card is to think of someone who would truly benefit from receiving the card, under the supervision of the parent. Here is one of the cards decorated with markers. You will also see  a pilgrim spoon that one of the girls made during meeting time. Hope you enjoy!

Thanksgiving and Fall Collage

Our girls created this simple, care free craft at our troop meeting. It gave the girls the ability to think about how to make a design using the pre-cut pieces for the season.

As Thanksgiving closes in on us in a short time, it is time to think about our Girl Scouts. It is a great time to teach them about being thankful and reaching out to others.

Service projects are also something that most troops will participate in. Our troop will be donating food to the local food bank to help those in need. We will also be making some crafts and talking about what the season means as a Girl Scout.

What is your troop doing this year? What is your family doing this season?
