Crafts for Brownie, Girl Scout Leaders
Feels like a 1000 years, ago, yesterday I was a Pixie, Brownie, Girl Scout Leader Always Looking for Easy Craft or DIY projects for my Troops to Create! Found Some, then, and Found Some for You if You're a Girl Scout Leader, too!
From Alisa Burke Redefine Creativity's blog Come the Tutorial for this Butcher Paper Wreath! Imagine, if You Will that You Let the Girls COLOR with WASHABLE Magic Markers the Flowers! Every Wreath would then be VERY different from One Another! Thus Encouraging Individuality when Creating a Similar Item! Easy to Do!
Okay, so it's NOT exactly a craft, but it is ''crafty'' in that it's so Easy Kids can Do It! From All Things Heart & Home Come this Recipe for Chocolate oatmeal No Bake Cookies and Malt eggs. Cute Easter Cookies!
IDEAS: Create Book Marks, print on cardstock, -or- Fuse to a Girl's favorite 13''x19'' Fabric then Iron on Clear Fusible Vinyl, & make placemats, -or- Make a Colorful ''Window Dangly'' ~ Using all kinds of Hues of GREEN PAINT SAMPLERS (from paint stores or home improvement stores) punch holes,top/bottom of all: ''Laws'' printed on Cardstock, & into green paint samplers, too. Take Yarn, Jute,etc. weave through backs, Make loop on top, hang in window, bedpost, etc.
Porcelain-like clay recipe. Make ahead of time for your younger aged troop, & have them bring their favorite cookie cutters, stamps, etc.,some might not have any, bring some of your own, too! Have them make a choice of magnets or ornaments. Extra dough can be put in a zippy bag, kept in the fridge for a long time. If sticky once warmed back up with working of hands, add in a little more cornstarch until its no longer sticky. Can be sanded, and painted once thoroughly dry!
Ask girls to bring in ''a newspaper magazine insert'' have 1 available to SHOW them what they'll need for a future project. They can be the SAME magazine or DIFFERENT ones. After you collect those, cut from each, ONLY a picture or ONLY a picture w/words, cut 1 per child, and a couple of extras. At the next meeting, pass 1 to each girl. Have them glue to it on cardstock, & write in ''Their Own Words'' an imaginative story to go with the pic/words or pic (you've chosen.) Helps them envision!
I'm sorry, but I'd like to REVISE the directions for this! Because the sock needs to be stretched to foot size, BEFORE applying PuffyPaint, have each girl, roughly outline her own bare foot on a piece of cardstock, then cut it out. Now slip the sock OVER that ''foot'' ~ place on a flat surface, then follow directions from there, for bottom of sock. Trust me, these have to dry for 24 hours.

Instead of on a sewing machine, the younger troop of gals-Brownies-after gluing fabric to cardstock, can hand sew, this will teach them to use their imagination & create different kinds of stitches, ones you give/show them, and some they make up, like maybe a kind of daisy or asterisk! Use Seasonal fabrics, if you're doing this later in the year! (prints with pumpkins, autumn leaves, Christmas - Winter holiday themes) *Sew Fun* Time! Here~ tinyurl.com/7jucnxy
