Girl Scout World Thinking Day, which takes place each year on February 22nd, is celebrated around the world by both Girl Scouts and Girl Guides. It is one of the three Girl Scout holidays on the calendar that are meant to be celebrated with your troop.
While it is a month away, it is never to early to plan your meeting. Planning in advance takes away a lot of the stress of what you are going to do with your girls. Here are resources for World Thinking Day 2018 for the theme “Impact”-having a strong effect on something or someone.
