It’s hard to believe, but Thursday starts August! Being Girl Scouts, who are always prepared, prepare yourself for the upcoming month with… Girl Scouting in August.
August 4th celebrate National Sisters' Day by sending out cards to your closest friends and Girl Scout sisters. Consider having your Cadettes, Seniors or Ambassadors form friendships with younger Girl Scouts by having them teach the art of friendship bracelet making. In the end, the girls can trade their friendship bracelets as a way to show their bonds! Additionally, encourage your girls to make new friends this year, which will earn them their “Make New Friends” fun patch. Remember, just as Vi, the Daisy flower friend teaches us, be a sister to every Girl Scout.
Talk to your Cadettes about exploring the world of financial literacy and math skills involved in the home décor and fashion industries at our program Designer Division, Stylish Subtraction, and Fashionable Fractions. From August 5-9, your Cadettes will be on their way to learning multiple methods and useful skills to aid them in their earning of their Financial Literacy badges. For more information contact Lucy Effron or register on our Programs Spotlight page.
August 10 is National S’mores Day! This year while you’re sitting at a bonfire with your girls, teach them how to make this classic camping treat first created by the Girl Scouts! This gooey snack is a great and delicious reason for your troop to get together over the summer season… don’t forget to sing your campfire songs. --if you don't happen to have a campfire on August 10, check out GSNC's S'mores board on the GSNC's Pinterest page for other recipes for this yummy treat.
August 25 consider taking your girls out for a fun day at Citi Field to watch the New York Mets take on the Detroit Tigers! Go with fellow sisters, troop members, family and friends and receive 20% off of tickets! Upon participation, your girls will receive a New York Mets Scout Patch! For more information contact Nicole Annese of the Mets Group Sales Department at 718-559-3020, and tell her you're a Girl Scout!
