Organizing Your Hobby Edit

If you are starting a collection, try organizing it. Give each thing a special label with its name and other important information. Arrange your collection to show it off. Your collection should be easy and attractive to see. If you can, go to a museum to see how collections of paintings, fossils, or dinosaur bones are arranged. Do the arrangements at the museum give you any ideas for organizing your own collection?

Activity #4 Practicing Your HobbyEdit

Your hobby should give you lots of enjoyment, so make time for it. Once you have practiced your hobby for awhile, try teaching it to a friend or family member.

Making an Example Edit

If your hobby is making things, like knitting, drawing, or building models, create and display an example to show other people how your craft is done.

Show and Tell Edit

The other girls in your troop might choose hobbies very different from your own. Host a day of show and tell. Girls can describe their hobbies, display things they have made or collected, and help other girls get started with the same hobbies. You might invite a parent or guardian and your troop leader to show and tell hobbies as well.
