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.
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.
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”!
