|You in Guiding: Understand the Promise and Law and Motto|
Last week, we gave the girls a choice of Enrollment themes: World, Campfire, or Hogwarts. Each theme got votes, but Hogwarts was the winner.
We found the outline for the Hogwarts Enrollment in two places: NB Girl Guide site and AB Girl Guides Bright Ideas.
We gave the girls chopsticks to use as wands.
We didn't make hats or capes for the girls. The leaders wore capes (we have a leader who works at a university who got them for us).
We had a sorting hat with walkie talkies and it worked really cool. (We had 18 girls being enrolled).
The 2nd and 3rd years lit candles as they recited the promise.
We had the cauldron with Dragon Spit (vinegar) and Ground Unicorn Horn.
We used the first hour to set up the room and rehearse the ceremony. Then the parents arrived at 7:30 and we did the ceremony. The whole thing worked really well and was a lot of fun!

6:30-7:00: Patrol Time--We let them work on their Friendship Bracelets. They have lots of fun doing this--we have a hard time getting them to put them away!
7:15-7:35: Enrollment invitations--We gave the girls cards and supplies and they each designed an invitation to bring to their parents, inviting them to enrollment the following week. They do love gluing and creating! (EP#2)
7:35-8:15: We played a written game of Telephone. My daughter has a game called Scribblish that I used to set this up. You start with a sentence and then draw a picture of it. You fold down the sentence, pass the picture to the person beside you, and they have to write a sentence that goes with the picture. Fold down the picture, and the next person has to draw a picture that goes with the sentence. It's a lot of fun and the girls loved it! We played this within patrols.

8:15-8:30: Some songs and Taps
