I am a firm believer in having a few meetings during the year just for the fun of it. A seasonal craft or a craft that does not tie into any patch or holiday is just fine. Girls love to craft!
If you do not have time to create an original craft, I came across a website created by other Girl Scout leaders that does the thinking for you. Many of them are simple-perfect for Daisy Girl Scouts-while others can be done by older scouts. You know the capabilities of your troop best, so you can pick and choose what will work for you.
