Thinking Day

My DD's troop just had its "Thinking Day" with some other area troops. They had an International Night. DD's troop picked Ireland. They wore decorated T-shirts, learned an Irish dance to perform for that night, and brought Irish food to share. Some other countries represented were Mexico, Italy, and Japan.

What do other troops do for "Thinking Day?"

Hi, I have a troop of Brownies. We exchanged postcards from troops in 40 different states. It was a lot of fun. When we sent our postcards out we marked the state with a silver star and marked each state that we got replies from with a gold star. We used a large map. The girls thought that it was "cool" that we did this. The school also had an international dinner and each troop picked a country and served food from that country.

I have a approved home business!

The postcard exchange sounds like great fun. Maybe our troop can plan ahead for that next year.

As we live in a large city we have many different "areas" of girl scout troups. Our area had several troops that picked a country and had crafts, foods or information on this country. All the girls or troops that did not have a "booth" could visit each one. The foods and crafts could be bought for a minimal price. This price covered the cost of the ingredients and what was left over was donated to the main girl scout unit. This being our first year as a troop we just visited. One of the troops had also exhanged cards and I thought this was a great idea too. Other areas did the same thing I believe but at different locations.

My daughter is a second year JR. This year they had a large tea party. Eveyone picked a country and they dressed traditional and decorated their tables. They had a blast.
Many used tea and finger foods assocaited with their country.
