It's been a couple of easier weeks at Brownies - by easier I mean I wasn't leading the activities.  Last week we found activities for them to do from their Adventure books, which involved looking at the strengths and talents of the girls within their sixes, and then asking them to read various scenarios and discuss the best outcome from the choices provided.  It got the Brownies talking to each other, and as far as we could see they were all able to contribute something.

This week we were doing the Mr Men and Little Miss Marathon challenge which enables groups to raise funds for children with cancer.  The idea is to do 26 things and be sponsored in the process.  Sparkly Owl suggested they do 26 exercises for one minute each.  Last week they were sent out with their forms and then this week they did their exercises.  It was a proper challenge, but overall they agreed it was worth doing.  And hopefully we will raise a good sum for charity.  We know one of our Brownies has had a good number of sponsors because people think it's a good charity.

Thank you to all those of my flist who provided me with the website of their national guiding/girl scouting organisation.  I've been able to find all the information I need for the activity towards our Brownie World Traveller badge.  I've also kept a note of the details so I can use them again.

I'm currently counting Sainsburys vouchers.  Every year we collect Active Kids vouchers.  Last year we collected enough to obtain four brightly coloured skipping ropes - not much in the great scheme of things, but it all helps our group.  This time we have about five times as many vouchers, which is wonderful.  It's nice to feel the parents are supporting us in this way, including involving grandparents and other relatives.
