Other Fun Activities To Try
Make a Friendship Tree
Give each girl a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper and have them draw a tree on page. Then have each girl and leader go around and put their fingerprint on the tree and sign their name.
A important part about being a sister to every Girl is trust. This game have girls form two parallel lines to make a path for another girl to run through. The girls making the path extend their arms toward each other to block the way for the other girls to run. When a girl runs through the line the other girls must drop their arms just before he runs through them. This activity will teach girls to trust their friends, as they begin to trust each other more they will move through the path quicker.
Sing Make New Friends
Below are the lyrics for all the versus. Do as many as your girls have interest in singing.
Make new friends,
but keep the old.
One is silver,
the other is gold.
A circle is round,
it has no end.
That’s how long,
I will be your friend.
A fire burns bright,
it warms the heart.
We’ve been friends,
from the very start.
You have one hand,
I have the other.
Put them together,
We have each other.
Silver is precious,
Gold is too.
I am precious,
and so are you.
You help me,
and I’ll help you
we will see it through.
The sky is blue
The Earth is green
I can help
to keep it clean.
Across the land
Across the sea
We will always be.

What do we do after your girls complete the activities?
Well of course give them the badge to display proudly on their vest, they earned it! Additionally If you are like many leaders we want to award our girls when they complete something even beyond just the patch. One great way to show achievement is with a certificate. Don’t worry you don’t have to make them, I found a resource that has done all the work for you and all you have to do is print them and customize the certificates with each girl’s name, badge or award earned, date, and troop leader. Editable certificates perfect for awarding girls after earning a badge.
