Leaders – It’s time to start thinking about Thinking Day! Feb 25th, 2017 from 2-4pm Download Registration Flyer Here
The Sunnytrails International Thinking Day Celebration is one of our girls’ favorite events each year. Thinking Day is when Girl Scouts and Girl Guides all around the world think about their sister scouts in other countries. It falls right in the middle of cookie sales so it is crucial to start planning early for this event.
At our annual event, troops select a country to represent at the Celebration. The girls in the troop work together to create a booth representing their country and they often like to wear costumes representing the traditional clothing in their country. Troops select between serving small food samples, teaching a craft, or leading a game to the other troops in attendance at the event.
Check this spreadsheet to see what countries are taken already and get your registration in to Angie to reserve the country your troop wants!
Here are some examples from other year’s events:
At the event we like to start with a “parade of countries” when the girls carry the flag of their country and/or a sign. Then it’s time to visit the booths! We typically divide our troops into two groups so that one group gets to visit the other troops’ booths while the other group stays at your booth to share it with the other troops at the event. It is a fantastic, educational day and one your girls will look forward to every year!
