World Thinking Day is an internationally celebrated holiday for Girl Scouts to remember their international sisters. It serves as a reminder that the United States is only one part of a global community. Troops from around the council pick a country and then come together to educate other scouts about that country. The troops research lots and lots of facts, as well as learn certain words from the native language, create an authentic food, and create swaps that represent that country. They then build a booth so other troops can come learn about the awesomeness of that country.
Our girls have chosen Ghana for their country and have been hard at work painting a flag, making a few different swaps, researching facts and building Adobe houses.
To make the flag above, our Cadettes came up with a great idea to use just basic chart paper and poster board to paint a flag for display at our booth. They taped the two together on the back to make a large flag and then used Apple Barrel Craft paint for the bright colors.
I can’t wait to share more of their finished projects. Their booth is beginning to come together nicely.
