What is Girl Scout Week?
When my troop was younger, we always celebrated this week by doing activities as a troop and optionally, at home. For Girl Scout Week 2019, here is a list of resources leaders can use to help them with this important holiday.

Girl Scout Week 2019 Resources
One thing new leaders need to remember is that these resources are a guide. Always do what works for your troop and for you. You can combine different activities from these lists or make up your own. You can also check your Council website to see if there are any activities your troop can participate in.
If you are having the girls in your troop do activities on their own, please do not stress of get upset if a child does not do this outside of meeting activity. It is not personal...kindergarten and first graders have no control over what their parents will or will not do with them or for them.
