Do you have a kid? Are you a teacher? Do you home school? Are you in any way affiliated with a Girl Scout troop? Do you run or know of a good kids craft/activity blog? Have you ever interacted with a kid in any way whatsoever? Then please take pity on me and help!
My Brownie troop of second graders is starting up soon (Soon as in tomorrow. I am so prepared!) and I really want to come up with exciting things for us to do this year. Meaning, I am sick of making cloud pictures using cotton balls. Because if I have to get myself all excited about that one more time I will scream. And my Brownies will cry. And I'll have to shove the cotton balls into my ears.
I have an activity planned for tomorrow, which hopefully will take up as much time as possible. (If you know kids at all then you know this will not be the case. This one activity, which I'm hoping will last 30 to 45 minutes, will last 5 minutes at the most. And that's if I talk real slow-like when I give the instructions) If time doesn't fly by I have my fall back plan of "Let's go play outside with sidewalk chalk!" but that is only entertaining for so long and that's when I'm faced with answering the question "What are we doing next?" or the dreaded "When are we going to have some stinkin' FUN?" (One girl asked me that last year. At every meeting. That makes me feel like a great leader).
So, do you have any activity suggestions? Maybe a fun website you want to share with the class? Perhaps a book I should go purchase? Honestly you don't have to be that specific, I'll take random craft or activity suggestions. Something that has stuck with you over the years from your golden Girl Scout days? Seriously, I'll take any suggestion you have, no matter how dumb you think it is.
