Monkey Around Troop Kaper Chart

Are you new to being a leader or just want to try a new type of kaper chart. Today I want to show you how to make a 3D monkey in trees kaper chart.

What is a kaper chart? A troop Kaper Chart, is a chore or job to be done at the meetings. You use a chart to indicate what jobs are available and who will be in charge of that job at the meeting.

We all use them as Leaders, some just use paper forms others create elaborate poster boards. I am always looking for new creative ways to create a troop Kaper Charts. Every year I try to change it up a little for my girls. I thought it be cute to make each girl a monkey, with their name on it. What better place to put the Monkey is to hang it on a tree.

That idea evolved so not only is the troop Kaper Chart a tree used for tasks girls need to complete and do at meeting, but also I used the container to hold troop dues.

For this craft you will need

How to make craft

  • Glue brown construction paper all the way around the round container you will be putting tree on.Kaper Chart
  • Cut out and glue tree leaves all the way around the container to create the illusion that it is a tree. The tree leaves are pre-wrote out but I also included a few that are blank and you can add what ever you want to your kaper chart.Kaper ChartKaper Chart
  • Glue the Promise and the Law onto the tree as well. That way the girls have a reference when learning promise and law.Kaper Chart
  • Finalize the Kaper Chart, by placing girls names on all the Clothespins and gluing a monkey head to top of clothes pin. We actually did this as part of our Brownie GS Ways badge, so I didn’t get as elaborate with the monkey clothespins.Girl Scout Kaper Chart

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.
