When my troop was younger, one thing that they loved were craft supplies that had the Girl Scout logo or emblems on them. We used them primarily for our scrapbooks, but their uses can be extended to community service projects and other ideas as well.
While the supplies are not as bountiful as they once were, official Girl Scout items can still be found. Here are a few of them.
If you have older girls who love to craft, then this is one that you can make with them for Girl Scout Week! My friend, Marie, has this wonderful tutorial on how to make a pearler bead birthday cake. If you want, you can use green and white beads or use green ribbon for the bow.
You can find the tutorial, which is full of pictures, here.
Girl Scout beading projects make for easy meetings, especially during the busy upcoming holiday season. There are many beading crafts available online or in craft stores.
The Girl Scout Law Beading Activity Kit is perfect for Daisies. Be sure to have a few volunteers on hand to help the girls.
For Brownies and Juniors, this craft is a great ice breaker for the first meeting of the year. Or they could make this necklace as part of “being a sister to every Girl Scout” when working with a younger Daisy troop.
If your troop is able to do fundraisers, they can make bead bracelets and sell them at craft fairs or to people they know. It is inexpensive to buy beads in bulk packages. Girls can also make bracelets and necklaces as holiday gifts for friends and family.
Girl Scout Swaps are also fun for girls to do and share with other Girl Scouts.
Make a meeting easier for yourself with a Girl Scout beading project!
