Interesting Fall Crafts

As a scouts guide, there are numerous creative ideas that you can use for creating interesting fall crafts for girl scouts for both fun and as a way of teaching them something useful. While creating some of the fall crafts for girl scouts, the girls can learn how to be creative, as well as how to apply these ideas in real life situations such as camping. Some of the simple fall crafts for girl scouts that you may consider include making a hot dog roaster and a memory box using readily available materials from home.

Hot Dog Roaster

One of the fall crafts for girl scouts that is easy to make and really useful (especially if the girls are out camping) is a hot dog roaster. It operates without a flame and it may be helpful in case the girls are out camping under the hot sun and they lack fire, but need a quick snack.

The hot dog roaster is made from aluminum foil and uses the sun’s rays to roast the hot dog. All you need is a cylindrical container that is cut into half and covered in aluminum foil. The hot dog can then be placed in the container and left under the sun to roast.

Birch Bark Canoe

A birch bark canoe is one of the simplest fall crafts for girl scouts to make. The fact that the canoe actually floats in water makes this idea one of the most useful fall crafts for girl scouts to make while camping.

Supervision Required

In addition, the girl scouts get to learn how to recycle and nature’s products. To make this canoe, you only need birch bark, strong glue, and scissors. However, making the birch bark canoe is one of the fall crafts for girl scouts that will require supervision of an adult since it involves the use of precise cutting measurements, as well as scissors and glue, which may be misused in a harmful way by kids.

Funtime Summer Girl Scout Meeting Activities

Are you at a loss of what to plan for summer time Girl Scout events?

 

 

Check out these activities if you are at a loss for what to plan for your summer Girl Scout meetings. When planning a Girl Scout meeting in the summer months, you will need to determine if you want to just have a social gathering, or if your Girl Scouts will meet in the summer to complete a particular service task.

Social Gathering

If you choose a social gathering, there are many fun summer Girl Scout meeting activities like swimming at a local pool or beach, hiking in the woods, picnicking at a local park, or even horseback riding.  If the weather is too hot to allow for outdoor activities, remember you can always choose an indoor venue as well.

Indoor Activities

Some indoor activities that are perfect for a summer Girl Scout meeting are bowling, ice or roller skating, and sometimes there are even local indoor pools that can be accessed for a small fee.  Whatever you choose for your summer Girl Scout meeting, make sure you call ahead to determine hours of operation and restrictions on group size and make sure that food and drinks can be brought to the location or may be purchased on site.

Sending a Memo

Additionally, it is always wise to send a memo prior to your meeting to emphasize that, as Girl Scouts, it is important to observe proper etiquette at the site and leave it in the same condition (or better!) than it was prior to your summer Girl Scout meeting.
