Sunday 3 March – Happy Thinking Day!

Today we joined around 90 Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Rangers from our District to attend our District World Thinking Day celebration. Daffodil plus 8 of our Brownies had a great morning doing 2 African-themed activities.

On arrival, the girls went to their unit’s table and were given a blue or red sticker to denote what group they would be in. While waiting for everyone else to arrive they completed a World Thinking Day themed word search and coloured in an African-themed picture. The red group consisted of our youngest Brownies: Darcie-Bay, Izzy and Jessica while the blue group had our older Brownies: Emily S, Emma, Hannah and Vika. We gathered into a huge circle while Sarai, the event organiser completed the welcome speech and explained what we’d be doing. We then split into our 2 groups:

Blues – Craft.  We all made a fabulous elephant pom-pow which was lovely and easy (apart from when our wool kept getting tangled!).  Reds went straight into their African-drumming session with our 2 amazing instructors. Halfway through the morning we had a quick refreshment break with squash and biscuits and continued our word searches. Then the reds went to make their elephant pom-poms and the blues had a go at some African-drumming.

However, all too soon, it was time to go.  So, to finish off we laid our shiny 50p pieces on the world map (which will be donated to the Ukraine fund), renewed our promise and we sang the goodbye song.

Daffodil and the Brownies  had a lovely morning, particularly enjoying the very noisy drumming lesson. A big Brownie thank you to our district commissioner, Sarai and her Rangers for organising and running the day.
