What a strange week it was. Started off with paperwork for our five new girls getting all mixed up and a very confused mess trying to find whose was whose (stupid GO for putting the girls names on them instead of leaving them blank – but that’s a rant for another day) and then we went into the hall. After some long winded introductions and tangents about who did what in the holidays, we sat down to make some ‘helping hands.’
The girls drew around their hand, cut it out and coloured it in, then wrote on each finger a different thing that they could do to lend a hand. In the palm they wrote ‘XXXX’s Helping Hand’ and stuck it up on the wall. It was a very simple activity but helped to teach the new girls about the Brownie Guide Law. The girls then tidied away?????????!!!!!!!!! and played games for the rest of the night, until it was time to go home and sing the birthday song four times.
It was a good meeting to start off on, but very very very strange that they were so helpful tidying up. Shame they couldn’t be as well behaved in the circle, but I’ll take what I can get!!
