It's closing in on the end of April and you are getting ready for your Daisies to bridge to Brownies. I am sure you are both excited and nervous about this Girl Scout milestone, but I am here to tell you to relax! These are girls going into second grade...the ceremony should be short, cute and stress free for all involved.

In this blog post, my ultimate planning guide for your bridging ceremony, I have it all laid out for your step-by-step. I have been there and done that, so it is my goal to help you not stress about anything at all. Everything from who buys the Brownie uniform to what food to serve is discussed.
One thing I would like to know is that it whatever you decide to do, it does not have to be Pinterest pretty. The hours some leaders spend making things pretty is better spent on other activities. My co-leader and I spent about an hour painting these flower pots for our bridge.

Here is my rule for doing anything-KISS Keep It Simple Sister. You volunteer your time, your heart and your energy for the important things like meetings. Bridging is important, but it is not a wedding. People are going to remember the joy of the occasion, not the perfectly presented badges.
On my Scout Leader blog, you can read about bridging here and get some more ideas.
Keep the bridging decorations simple, and ask parents to bring items you need.
Don't forget to breathe and enjoy this occasion!
