Girl Scout Founder’s Day Ceremonies for Brownies and Juniors

Tradition is one of the core values of Girl Scouts. One way that we honor Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of the Girl Scouts, is with service and ceremony on her birthday, which is October 31st.

Younger Daisy Scouts can do simple projects to commemorate Juliette and learn about her. Brownies and Juniors, who should already be familiar with her history, can have a simply ceremony as part of the meeting and to give honor to someone who helped make the world a better place.

Because scouting is steeped in tradition, you do not have to drive yourself crazy trying to create you own Girl Scout Founder’s Day ceremony. It has already been done for you! Unlike bridging ceremonies, rehearsal is not needed, as this is for the girls and not the parents. It does not have to be perfect, it just has to be!

Here are some Girl Scout Founder’s Day ceremonies for you to use.

After your ceremony, it would be a great idea to do some kind of service project. Depending on the amount of time you have and the girls ability levels and interests, you can do something simple or more complex. I have a Pinterest board full of service ideas.  You can find it here.

At the end of the month, Girl Scouts around the world will be celebrating Founder’s Day.  One way to do that is to do a service project for others, like Birthday in a Bag, which my troop did a few years ago (you can read how we did this here).

Use duct tape for an easy Girl Scout Founder's Day craft.

I found these great ideas to do the Birthday in a Bag and make plain gift bags look even better.

At A  Daily Pinch, the blogger has pictures of crafts she did using Duct Tape. These are simple, easy to prepare and the extra Duct Tape can be used for crafts throughout the year.

The two I am partial to are the cake and the candle taped to the bag. All you have to do before the meeting is prep the tape by cutting four strips and a flame or the candle, a flame, and a piece of string. You can make your own kits by putting each set in it’s own baggie or inside the gift bags you have had donated or purchased.

Here ais a fund duct tape craft for your troop to do for Girl Scout Founder's Day.

Amazon has this set of 10 rolls of duct tape on sale for half price. Normally, these are about five dollars a roll, and these are half of that.

This is another set of 10 that is available and on sale.

This decorated bag will brighten up your donation. It can also be done during the holiday season.

A Quick and Easy Service Project for World Food Day on October 16

Here is a Girl Scout service project that is easy to do and will make an enormous difference in your community.

Here is a wonderful idea for your girls to help out the community and celebrate Girl Scout Founder’s Day. You can start planning now and be ready for your October meeting.

Back in May, I shared that our local Jewish Federation Food Bank had totally empty shelves. I had my girls take action and they each brought in a bag or two of food for us to donate.

This did not require any big planning on my part-just two simple emails to the parents about what the plan was. All I had to do was deliver the food at a time that was convenient for me.

World Food Day is October 16th.  While hunger is a worldwide problem, we can help locally. When my troop were Juniors, we did the Birthday in a Bag program for the food bank located in our high school.

This is a simple and easy service project to kick off the year.
