Meeting #5: Halloween Party Planning

You and Others: Learn How to Plan (YaO3)

You and Guiding: Understand the Promise and Law and Motto (YiG1)

Event Planning (EP)

6:30-6:50: We gave the Law Mini-Book (comment or email Guider Lee Ann from the Owl and Toadstool blog for the file) to work on for their lapbooks. We have a number of old envelopes donated by someone who works in a card store, so we cut those in half to make pockets for the lapbooks. We put the Guide Law mini-books into the pockets, since the back page is used and can't be glued in.

6:50-7:00: Horseshoe and Discussion

7:00-7:30: Be Prepared for Camp-we led a discussion about what the girls need to Be Prepared for camp. They created a kit list, with each girl contributing something to the list that they need to take with them to camp. (YiG1#3)

7:30-8:00: Halloween Party Planning
The Patrols drew from a bowl to determine which aspect of the party they would plan. Topics were:
Ghost Stories

We gave them laptops to do their research (the school has WiFi this year!) Each Patrol will have about 20 minutes for their portion of the party, with the Ghost Story part of Campfire. (YaO3#1, EP#1, EP#3)

8:00-8:30: Friendship Bracelets
As the Patrols finished planning, we taught them how to make friendship bracelets, an method I found from Pinterest. The idea is that they will have their bracelets in their Patrol boxes and can work on them when they first arrive. We are planning to send the finished bracelets to Sangam. Every Patrol didn't get a chance to start the bracelets as they didn't finish their planning in time, but we assured them that everyone would get an opportunity to make the bracelets through the year.
