Monday 5th December

After 6 very busy weeks, we finally finished our work on the fantastic Christmas Challenge badge by making peg doll angels and holding a Christmas jumper competition.   We’ve made some lovely Christmas decorations over the last 2 months including Father Christmas plates, hand-made gift tags, snowflake decorations, Reindeer food, bead Candy Canes and Christmas trees, lolly-pop stick Christmas trees and of course got to make and munch on lovely melting Snowman biscuits.  We welcomed 2 extra helpers this week: Erin’s mum, Gill, stayed to lend a much needed hand in the absence of Buttercup who was poorly – get well soon Buttercup!  We also had Kathryn, a 15-year old Duke of Edinburgh volunteer join us; Kathryn will be completing her 3-month service assessment at Brownies.  A massive Brownie welcome to both 🙂

Daffodil had designed a simple peg doll angel made with wooden pegs and gold and silver dollies.  The Brownies had the option to decorate as they liked and make whatever shape wings for their angel they liked.  We had some beautiful creations – certainly better than Daffodil’s sample!

For our Christmas jumper competition, the choice was very difficult as there were some awesome Christmas jumpers/outfit on display.  In the end, the Leaders unanimously decided to award the prize to the 4 Brownies who made (decorated) their own Christmas jumpers.  Well done to Hannah B, Isobel, Jessica and Mary who will receive their certificate and prize next week 🙂

Thank you to Emily O who made lovely chocolate chip fairy cakes as part of her Cook’s badge – they were delicious and went down a treat with the Brownies, leaders and Promise ceremony guests.

A quick tidy up and games while the Leaders and our hostesses, Hannah and Ava got everything ready for the Promise ceremony.  A full house at 7.15pm with around 10 guests who had come to watch Isobelle, Jessica and Paige take their Brownie promise with Daffodil. All the Brownies did an excellent job of remembering their Brownie Promise and Law.  All received an Adventure Book, Six badge, 1st Waddington (RAF) Brownies name tab, Mission Promise Challenge badge, Panda badge and a metal Brownie promise badge.  Well done again to all.  Thank you to Asha who was unit photographer for the night, and a special well done to our first time Brownie Buddies who brought the girls to the Promise pond: Chloe, Roslyn and Louise 🙂

That’s it – next week is our end of term “Glitz and Glam” disco and awards ceremony – can’t wait 🙂 🙂 🙂
