There are three official Girl Scout holidays, and the first one of the new year is next month, so it is time to start planning! World Thinking Day, which is celebrated every February 22nd, is when Girl Scouts from 146 countries around the world think of each other and promote the sisterhood of scouting. It involves doing a project of some kind, especially one that helps those who are living in poverty.
Each year there is a different theme. This year the theme is "Connect".
If you are wondering how to incorporate World Thinking Day with your meeting plan, have no fear! The GSUSA has ideas for you!
Here is the GSUSA's World Thinking Day 2016's website. You will find what kinds of connections the movement wants girls to make. If you scroll to the bottom and click on the "Daisies, Brownies, Juniors" tab, there is a list of activities that your girls can do to earn this patch. (Which, by the way, you should order early as they tend to run out as the date approaches. Contact your local Council store to place your order.)
On the WAGGGs website, there is a downloadable activity packet for leaders. You can find it here.
