If your looking for ideas to make your meeting more fun while teaching your girls how to be honest and fair, you have come to the right place. Using some of these activities below to help your girls understand that you need to be honest by telling the truth even if it might get you in trouble because a lie just will get you in more trouble. And to always ask yourself how you would feel if it wasn’t fair for you, so try to make it fair for everyone.
I recommend the following activities that will reinforce being honest and fair:
- Practice with activities
- Be creative with a craft
- Get moving with a game
- Put into action with a service project or real life experience.
- Optionally: If I have a song that related, sing that as well.
Below are a few ideas to get you started.

Do you want to skip all the planning? If so, use the Honest and Fair Activity booklet and take your girls on a garden adventure helping a family of fairies on a mission to teach the world how to live by very important values. Using the leader booklet and the girl’s activity booklet your girls will complete lots of activities to help their fairy friends plant flowers, water gardens, and learn how to put important values to live by into action.

Other Fun Activities To Try
Share a Dove Snack Activity
What you need: Have a bag of Dove candy(or any other candy for that matter) and gather clear cups for each girl.
How to do activity: You will give each girl a clear cup and write their name on the outside. Then without explaining anything start handing out candy, and counting out loud as you do. The first girl give her 5 pieces, the second girl only give her 4, maybe third girl gets only 2. As most kids do the girls will start to complain and probably tell you “This isn’t fair” or “Why did she get 5 and I only got 2?” After you have handed out candy to every girl it is time to ask the girl how we can make this more fair? How do we make it so each girl gets the same amount of candy and divided more fairly? This is where you give the girls time to figure out how to equally divide the candy. This will teach your girls the importance of sharing and being fair to everyone.

Being Honest Candy Game
I may like candy a little to much. You can always pick to do this with color beads if you don’t want your girls to have to much candy. Put the M&Ms in a bowl and have girls pick one out without looking. Whatever color they pick have them tell group the corresponding topic. Of course then they can eat the candy
- Red: Something about Yesterday
- Orange: Something you do well
- Yellow: Something about your family
- Blue: Something you learned last week
- Brown: Something you can’t live without
- Green: Something you watched or listened to Yesterday
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.
