Brown Owl has been very busy with other senior section stuff so late post!
Last week at brownies it was all about magazines
In our groups we had a look at magazines that were brought in and then went on to design our own!
After we had finished we made some loom band bracelets!
This week we are getting a digital skills workshop from Three UK all about internet safety and vlogging!
This week at rainbows it was all about the laugh section of our badge
We tried out some yoga in our rainbows. We all got into pairs and fairy laid out the yoga cards. The girls chose the pose they wanted to do and went back to their mat with their partner to try out!
The girls had great fun having the choice of the pose they wanted to do!
Next week is the last section of the badge. We will be getting a visit from the teddy bear hospital!
This week at brownies we continued our work on the popular culture badge. This week was all about fashion. We split into groups and each and a shot of being dressed up in bin bags (decorated with stickers and ribbons)
We then designed our own outfit on a person cut out! Then finished off the night with a game of port and starboard
Next week is we will be making loom band bracelets, designing a magazine cover and playing a celebrity guessing game
This week at rainbows we continued our get healthy badge.
This week we had a Rainbows Olympics. Fairy split everyone into teams and we went up to the tables and made a flag for our team
In the hall we played some balloon games to earn points for our team
Once we finished the game, we played with the parachute. We all had a shot at running underneath then threw some foam tennis balls into the air!
We finished off the night with singing some songs themed around the body!
Next week we will be trying out some yoga and making streamers
This week our brownies started off the year with the popular culture challenge badge!
New and old faces alike descended upon the meeting place and we got started
The first activity was a 2017 evaluation sheet to settle into
We then split into groups. Group 1 went into the Hall and were each give 2 newspaper sheets and had to work as a team to get to the other side of the hall and back without touching the floor
The second group were making a mini popcorn holder using card and template. When they made the holder they each filled it with popcorn! (And the leftover vegetables from the rainbows)
We finished off the night with a Disney themed quiz with tied winners, the pixies and leprechauns, so we had to do a game of giant Rock Paper Scissors to determine a winner, which was the pixies! (Gold coins and smarties fished out as winner and runner up prizes!)
Last on the agenda for this week was a Brownie promise which was done very well!
Next week is all about fashion, we will be making newspaper outfits!
Happy new year!
Our rainbows began their 2018 rainbows adventure! We started this year with the roundabout get healthy badge
As the girls walked in they were all very happy to be back (or so they told me anyway)
This week for the badge was all about healthy eating. The girls made their way up to the tables full of pens and paper and started to make posters all about healthy/unhealthy food!
When they were done it was time for our food activity, the girls descended toward the toilets to wash hands and headed back to a plate full of chopped up vegetables, prepared by Fairy! We had carrots, lettuce, tomatoes, peppers and cucumber!
The task was to use the vegetables to make a face! It was interesting to see ejow the different vegetables were used!
To finish off the night the girls played a game of beanbag toss with hula hoops!
Next week is all about exercise, so we will be having our own olympics!
So tonight we had a joint party with our rainbows for the last meeting of 2017! We all dressed up in our PJS and even got a visit from the ice cream van!
We have had an amazing year and here is just some of the stuff the group have been up to!
This year our rainbows have taken on lots of new experiences! We helped host a coffee morning for a local charity, visited the beach for our 30th birthday, attended a county rainbows party, went den building, visited Tesco behind the scenes, went on 2 rainbows sleepovers, learned a new dance, tasted some new food, made new friendships and most of all had fun!
