Great!!!

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl

OK UPDATE
had 2 more new girls arrive this wek 1 Guide and 1 Teddy. One mother sent a message that her girls will start after the school holidays. We have 2 weeks left of the term and then a 2 week holiday. Maybe more moms also feel they will start the girls in the new term. Will keep everyone posted

That's frustrating! But you're right one new one is one we didn't have before. What is wrong with the parents?

Thanks for the great ideas everyone. Have saved them all for use in the future. I am a little bummed cause only 1 new girl arrived on Friday. out of the 14 whose parents said they would bring them. Oh well ! new Teddy is a start and she had lots of fun with the others.

I had chosen a few games which my girls then played and then I got the Guides to teach the Brownies their knots. Lots of girls were missing so great bit of one on one time with the girls. It was so cute how excited the little Brownies get when they get something like a reef knot right fot the first time.
So this week I am going to sms all the parents and let them know we would still like to see their daughters and then I will just have a normal meeting planned for this week. If new girls come they will just fit in.

You wouldn't have time to do all this for Friday . . . but might be able to incorporate part of it. When I did rally a few years back, I had a round table for each level (with table cloths of the "color" of that level). I put one of those freestanding poster boards (tri-fold like you use for science projects) on each table with pictures of scouts of that level doing stuff. Then we had displayed books, uniforms, etc on the tables. Each table had something to give the girl who visited - like the GS paper doll to color, etc. As the girls came in we gave them a card that they got stamped as they visited each table. As they left, they turned in the card and got a goodie (pencil or something - I can't remember). At each table was a scout of that age group, who told the girls about one part of scouting (service projects, camping, etc.)

One day at a time . . .

A real simple idea, songs and games that you normally play or sing together, even something as simple as the friendship circle, sometimes less is more....

Make the mock campfire out of candy and tell them what they get to do when they really go camping. Maybe bring a photo album to show all your activities.

Hi everyone
Had the most amazing day on Saturday, our numbers have been dwindling slowly so I decided t go to the local Schools funday on Satrday. We had a table with posters the girls had done and some crafts and we had the girls all there in thier uniforms. We had soo many enquiries and moms are really keen to send thier girls.
SO
the question is. What can we do this Friday evening that is really FUN and about Guiding so the new girls get a real feel of what we are about?
Also I may not have all my helpers so ideas for any age group, Teddies, Brownies or Guides would be really appreciated. I am having a family crisis and won't have major time for planning so hope someone can help.
Thanks in advance
