Meeting #6: Halloween Party

Event Planning (EP)

6:30-6:50 Patrol Time--Since we wanted the friends to experience what a meeting was like while also having a party, we had Patrol Time and gave them Halloween Word Search and Spot the Differences sheets to work on. I found these easily through Google. (EP#7)

6:50-7:00  Horseshoe--Again, to give the friends a sense of Guides, we started with Horseshoe.

7:0-7:10 We had a Costume Parade with the Sparks from down the hall. Lots of great costumes! (EP#7)

7:10-8:00 Halloween Fun!

Wax Museum--One girl is It. The rest need to create a pose and hold. It walks around and tries to catch people when they move. When It has her back turned, the statues need to change their position without getting caught. (EP#6)

Relay Races--Each team has an empty bowl by their line and and a bowl with candy corn at the other end. Each team has one spoon. They had to transfer the candy corn from one end to the other using their spoon. They couldn't pick it up off the floor if they dropped it--that way they could eat it at the end! (EP#6)

Halloween Skits--Each group came up with skits on the Dos and Don'ts of Trick or Treating.  Is anything more Guiding than making up skits?! (EP#6)

8:00-8:25 Food and Fun!

They put on music for a dance party and set out food to eat. They had Sugar cookies to decorate, brownies, cupcakes, fruit, veggies, chips, pretzels, and punch!

The girls did a great job organizing everything and everyone had a lot of fun. (EP#4)

8:25-8:30--Clean up and closing. We gave out treat bags that had Halloween pencils and erasers. In the friends' bags, we also put in Guide bookmarks, Guide registration magnets, and a piece of paper that told them to talk to their parents if they wanted to register.
