Mini Scrapbook

Last meeting, the girls decorated a chipboard Girl Scout.
It's actually going to be the front page to their mini scrapbook album that they will be doing all year round.
We will keep adding pages onto it.
For Homework: I needed them to decorate the back of that girl. They could use whatever materials you have on hand. The sky is the limit!
Bring them back at this Tuesday's meeting....!
I will be putting them in their own bags so they don't lose them. I will also be giving them pictures throughout the year to put in them.
If you ever take pictures and would like to share, please email me at
I have a few girls that left them at the meeting. I have them with me. If your GS did not take one home, please get it from me this week to complete. Thank YOU!

*These turned out adorable. We did one page a month for each holiday or season. At the end of the year, I bound them into Mini Albums {I kept their pages in gallon sized bags all year at my home so they don't get lost} I printed out wallet sized pictures and they put them in the last meeting. The very last Award Ceremony, they all got a Scrapbook Patch.


This year we are doing things a little differently with Dues.
Instead of paying at the door, the girls are going to collect them within their own Troops.
We had a cute box at the front of the girls to put their Dues in when they Sign-In.
 One way of having my girls be more responsible with the money is to have them carry their Dues on their own. My little Daisy wears dresses sometimes and doesn't have pockets so I thought having them carry some type of pouch would be good so they don't lose their money.
I envisioned a smaller see-through pouch when I made it up in my mind...but these were .97 cents at they work. They are the binder pouches with the holes, so I put flowers to cover them up. The little lace is actually elastic so they can slip it on their wrists.
Hopefully, they work well....! We'll test them out this week.

New Badges

Debuting in the Fall of 2011, we have added some NEW Girl Scout Badges to the collection.
I have to say, I am really impressed with these. They are adorable and some are great lessons for the girls...!

I cannot wait to get the year started because not only do the girls learn new things, many times I do as well....! We're learning together....!
