Lakeshore Learning also has many craft items and they love to share them via their free Saturday morning craft classes. This is a fun way to get your young troop together without having to plan anything. Just send an email to the parents and share when you will be there with your daughter and make it known that this is not a drop off event, but an informal gathering. It is perfect for summer meetings!

Here is the most recent schedule of free craft classes from Lakeshore Learning. Keep it bookmarked so you can stay informed as it is updated over the summer!

This week’s free Girl Scout program comes from Kitten Krazy in Medina, Ohio. There are printable directions for leaders.  T he requirements include a tour of the facility, but if you are not in the area, I am sure you can tour a local shelter to fulfill this requirement. Then there is a listing of five things to do, and only one needs to be fulfilled to earn the patch. Leaders can buy an inexpensive fun patch if you do not live locally; those in the Kitten Krazy area have to contact the coordinator to receive your free badges.
