Are you looking for the next big fun event to do with your troop or maybe your service unit. Have you ever heard of the Minute to Win it game show? If not let me real quick explain it. It is a game show where the participates has 60 seconds to complete a task that could allow them to win a million dollars by completing 10 different challenges using household items. Many of these challenges are things we have laying around our home or can get ahold of: Kleenex, rubber bands, plastic cups, oreos, etc..

We put together a Minute to Win it boot camp and party night. Where we put girls into teams and gave them one hour to practice all the different events. The following day we had a Minute to Win It Challenge game where each group picked one participate to battle the others to complete the game in one minute

One of the funniest games we played was Junk in the Trunk where a contestant had to shake off 8 ping pong balls out of an empty tissue box attached to their waist. And they had to do it without any hands. It was fun to watch the kids but even funnier when we got the leaders involved.

This is a event where you will have lots of laughs and great photos and memories to share for years to come.

My name is Jodi Carlson, I am a mom, wife, & web designer and come with 25 years of GS experience. I am now sharing my experiences and helping other Girl leaders be great and successful and shape today’s girls to be the leaders of tomorrow. I was blessed with a Son in March of 2015 and stepped down as a full time girl leader, but missed planning and volunteering, so I decided after 25 years I have so many ideas to inspire girls and help leaders so I choose to build this blog and it has grown into a resource beyond GS, I am reaching girl leaders in many organizations.
