Girl Scout Leader Essentials-What Are Yours?

I have a Girl Scout leader bag that has everything in it that I need for each meeting.  That includes:

  • My Girl Scout binder
  • Games for Girl Scouts
  • First Aid Kit
  • Puzzle Pages
  • Elastic Band for Chinese Jump Rope
  • Extra Snack in case someone forgot
  • Water Bottle

I usually bring the materials for whatever we are doing in a separate tote bag, so the things I use all the time do not get mixed up with the other things I am using just for a particular meeting.

If you are wondering why I have a Chinese jump rope in my bag, I’ll tell you. Two years ago, when we were first year Brownies, we earned the Around the World Try It badge.  I used the directions in Games for Girl Scouts to make it the rope from a few yards of elastic cord.
I played the game as a young girl and loved it.  When I taught it to my girls, they fell in love, too!  We play it whenever we have a few extra minutes at the end of a meeting-it is often requested.  When the weather permits, we play the game outside.
What do you have in your Girl Scout leader bag that you bring to every meeting?
