Our last “real” meeting of 2018 is going to be BUSY.
We haven’t had a normal meeting for a month … we’ve been busy gallivanting all around town. As you do. Brownies have things to do, people to see, places to go! And now we have a lot of catch up to do.
We will start with our opening rituals promptly at 6:45, as we have gotten in the habit of starting late while we wait for stragglers. Then we need to finish our Christmas pen pal letters … so far about 1/3 of the girls have done them at the day camp we did, but I need to work with the others to catch them up. I have a love-hate relationship with these letters. Second and third graders don’t spell the best to begin with, but most of our girls go to school in French and our letters are in English, so it requires a lot more time to write them than I had expected.
We are also going to have a snack, made by Snowy Owl and her two girls, both of whom are in this unit. And Christmas storytime of course. I know there are some badge presentations to do, and I need to introduce a badge activity that we are planning on encouraging the girls and their family’s to do over the break. More to come in another post.
This Christmas theme is also a PJ party! Who doesn’t love a Christmas PJ day?!?!
Finally, Snowy has prepared a personalized craft for the girls to make, and give to their families for Christmas. We took all of their photos at an earlier meeting and developed them for the girls to use. We also took a couple of group shots that we can give to the girls as mementos of their year in Brownies.
