For our Christmas party every year we tend to bridge with the other groups at our meeting place. While we waited for everyone to arrive, we set up a couple of tables at one end of the room and made gave the Guides some supplies so that they could make some cards:
– One as a thank you to Caroline for our visit to the Cosmodôme
– One for Caralyn, one of the leaders who had been with us last year and recently had a baby
– One as a get well soon card for one of our Guides
They enjoyed that and it kept them entertained for quite a while. I was very impressed with their creativity as well! Later, we got together with the other units and painted some wooden Christmas ornaments. It’s always nice to see out Guides interacting with the younger girls (Sparks and Brownies).
Then we played a game and the units took turns going up and choosing snacks that the girls had provided. It wasn’t a particularly program intensive meeting, but the girls had lots of fun!
