Discover KeyEdit

Discover Your Special Talents and QualitiesEdit

My troop did the ball toss game mentioned in the Brownie Quest Leader's Guide, followed by the girls sitting down to fill out their "Discovering Me" star, which worked fine.

  • Teambuilding Spinner. If I did it again, I might modify a spinner like this one from Laura Candler to ask the girls different questions. (Note: While this link says it is for team-building, it seems more useful as a get-to-know-you activity.)
  • Conversation Starters for getting to know each other.
  • I am Posters. My troop made I Am posters. On thick scrapbook paper, I put a picture of each girl. Then using magazines, they cut words that describe them and their talents. I made sure each of them had the words I Am at the top of the poster.

Discover Values of the Girl Scout LawEdit

  • Girl Scout Law Scavenger Hunt. After looking around in vain for a Girl Scout Law Scavenger Hunt, I finally made up my own File:Girl Scout Law Scavenger Hunt.docx. You should be able to do this in most meeting places, but look at the location hints to make sure they all fit. The file includes: a scavenger hunt list (pages 1-2; print one copy for each girl); pictures to cut apart and hide around the meeting site (pages 3-12; print these double-sided, so the words end up on the back of the appropriate picture; print enough to have a copy of each picture for each girl); a key at the end to know where to hide the pictures (pages 13-14).
  • Girl Scout Law letterbox. Another similar idea I had for this was to do it as a Girl Scout Law letterbox set.
  • Girl Scout Law Game. Have the girls make up their own rules for this game using the printable board game, some game markers (whatever you want to use), and some dice.

Discover Your Family's ValuesEdit

Connect KeyEdit

Connect as a TeamEdit

Hula Hoop team-building. We did the hula hoop team building activity from the book, which the girls thought was fun. We did it around the circle once in both directions (and then they wanted to do it again).

I also did another hula hoop activity I learned from an office team-building years ago. The girls stand in a circle and hold out only their index fingers straight. Place the hula hoop in the middle on their fingers -- they can't curve their fingers around it to make it easier to hold! Then, without anyone losing touch with the hoop, they have to lower it to the ground and back up again. It sounds easy, but it's a lot harder than it sounds! (And it was even hard to do with 20 adults!) They have to work together and pay attention to what others on the team are doing.

Saving Fred activity. Help Fred the gummy worm get to his 'life preserver' using only paper clips.

Connect with Your FamilyEdit

Make A Family Star that shares why and how the Girl Scout Law is important in your family.

Help lead your family in healthy habits, leading a family talk about healthy foods (how does healthy food help us, use a food pyramid), and come up with family exercises that would help your family lead a healthy lifestyle (like taking a walk every day).

  • help mom or dad go grocery shopping and prepare a healthy meal.

Connect with Your CommunityEdit

  • Me on the Map activity to show the different circles of inclusion between me, family, neighborhood, community, town, state, country, world, etc.
