Leader Feature: Girl Scout Week
Every month we will have ideas, tips, and resources for you to use during troop meetings or as part of your Girl Scout year.
From the GSUSA website: "Girl Scout Week is celebrated each March,
starting with Girl Scout Sunday and ending with Girl Scout Sabbath on a Saturday, and it always includes Girl Scouts’ birthday, March 12." What will your troop's Girl Scout Week include?
Modified from the GSUSA blog...
Girl Scout Week starts with Girl Scout Sunday and ends with Girl Scout Sabbath. Whether you're Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, follow another faith or are not religious, take some time today to connect with your beliefs and values and learn about someone else's. And take a moment to perform an act of kindness - that's something everyone believes in!
Give a big shout-out to your Girl Scout sisters! Whether you tag other Girl Scouts on social media or get creative and make a card or gift for a Girl Scout in your life, don't be bashful about sharing the love!
Do a Good Turn Daily
Perform an act of kindness. Whether you pay for a stranger's cup of coffee, drop flowers on the doorstep of an elderly neighbor, or hang fun drawings in your window, every bit of positivity Girl Scouts put out there helps make the world a better place.
Girl Scout Scout Spirit Day
Break out your Girl Scout gear. Whether a cookie shirt, a camp shirt, a troop shirt or just some Girl Scout bling, this is your chance to show your spirit!
Try Something New
Girl Scouts is all about stretching your boundaries in a safe environment. Is there a new craft or activity you've been thinking about trying? This is the day to do it!
Girl Scouts love the outdoors. Whether you take a hike, go for a walk, or ride a bike, it's great to get outside. Maybe try a new trail or go down a street you've never walked just to spice it up!
Happy Birthday Girls Scouts
