Girl Scouts Salvation in the Assembly Line

Crafts can be a ton of fun for an activity in girl scouts. But it can turn into a messy headache just as quickly. To turn this project into a fun activity you can turn to the assembly line approach. This way you can get the girls all going on their craft while sparing a majority of the mess and headache.

If space allows, set up a station for each step in the craft. This can even be as small as a paper plate with the components for that step. Be sure to show the girls how to do the craft yourself. You can even write up directions for each step and have it at that particular station.

Let’s use a s’more as an example (just to illustrate the step process). Each piece of the s’more would have its own plate. The chocolate would have a plate, the graham crackers would have a plate, and the marshmallow would have a plate. You would set them in order of how you would assemble them. After you show the girls how to make the craft, you would have the girls one by one (or two by two if a station is big enough) go through each station and make the s’more themselves. Easy!
