The Future of Guiding

I’ve spent much of today updating our Brownie Scrapbook.

We’ve been keeping a scrapbook for a couple of years now.  Each girl signs and dates it when she makes her Promise, and we’ve been recording our favourite activities – in pictures, words, and the occasional spare badge.  The girls enjoy looking back at everything they’ve done during their time at Brownies.

We’re at the end of our current book, and I thought it was appropriate that the last page is filled with items from the Brownie Traditions badge – specifically, what will Brownies be like in 10 years time?  I love doing that clause with them, because it gives a wonderful insight into how their minds work.

Apparently, hoverboard races will be all the rage.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.  Take a look at the list of activities – art, acting, games, and drawing.  We’ll do gardening, singing, dancing and swimming badges, and make a display out of petals.

Brownies will make friends anywhere!

Oh, but also we’ll have a going to the moon badge, alien buddies and robot buddies, hover-board races and flying cakes.  Are they supposed to be healthier because you have to exercise in order to catch them?

One thing’s for certain – if in ten years time we do have a going to the moon badge, I am SO there.  Brings a whole new meaning to “International Guiding”!
