Since we were not going to be meeting on the 22nd we celebrated our World Thinking Day at our meeting.
The girls were told to pick a country they wanted and to bring in a dish from that Country. It turned out we had France and Italy at our celebration.
The table was set with a theme from France. Pink Poodles and Eiffel Towers scream France.
Inside the little box was a watch, a bracelet and a finger puppet for each girl to take home. They also got their very own Pink Poodle, an Eiffel Tower and stickers.
While we waited for everyone to get there, horns were blowing and laughter was heard through out the room.
Then it was time to say the Pledge Of Allegiance, the Girl Scout Law and Promise.
Even though it is fun to wear silly hats and gloves, the girls know when to be serious and saying the Pledge of Allegiance, The Law and Promise is that time.
A perfect example of having fun and being well behaved is Jesse in her hat as she places her paw...oh, I mean hand over her heart as she says the Pledge of Allegiance.
I love this picture!
For dinner we had a yummy Antipasto salad and bread that Nikki brought to celebrate Italy.
A wonderful chicken pasta dish and more bread that Jesse brought. She also picked Italy as her Country.
Then we enjoyed great French Chocolate Eclairs that Trinity brought. Her Country of choice was France.
After we ate and worked some on our Pet Care badge, it was time to make our World Thinking Day craft.
I wasn't sure if the girls would really enjoy this craft but I was happy to see they did.
We made a Passport! First we talked about what a Passport was and why one would use them.
Even though the real Passports are a dark blue we made our Passports pink!
Inside we put info about several Countries. The girls learned about each Country and we talked about different food, names and what life would be like in those Countries.
Of course, we love to show off our creative side. So, once the Passports were made, I brought out all the stickers, shinny stones, glittery items and so on so the girls could make theirs a one of a kind Passport.
