Girl Scout Daisy + Brownie + Junior ACTIVITY GUIDE


to the second century of Girl Scouting! What a great time to be a Girl Scout with so many ways to get involved, have fun, explore possibilities, experience new adventures, challenge yourself, take trips and reach for the stars!

When you just can’t wait for what you’ll do next, you can do anything. At Girl Scouts, girls are always counting down to the next adventure we’ll go on together. Maybe it’s artistic. Maybe it’s an experiment. Maybe it’s getting outside or helping the community. With us, you’ll make a bunch of new friends and have a ton of new experiences that show you how exciting the world is, and how awesome you are, over and over again. So what are you waiting for? Remember...

The word TREFOIL means “three leaves.” It’s the official symbol of Girl Scouting.


Find Your Way to Girl Scout Camp! Spend a weekend at camp with your troop and go on a safari adventure, climb the Alpine Tower, paddle a canoe, take an aim at archery, roast s’mores and more. See inside for more information!

Girl Scout Cookie Sale The annual Girl Scout Cookie Sale Program is an amazing experience! If you’re a Brownie Girl Scout or older, you can be a part of this year’s sale. Besides earning funds for your troop, you can earn great prizes for yourself! And while having fun, you’re also building skills like budgeting, marketing, planning, and goal setting which will help you throughout your life!

Jell-O® Mountain Geologists take many core samples to see the different layers of the Earth. Here’s a fun way to try your hand at core samples. Materials Needed Three different packages of quick-setting gelatin or pudding Cut up fruit, nuts, raisins, mini-chocolate chips, etc. Three bowls and spoons One big bowl Cake pan/baking dish Straws

What To Do 1. Follow the directions for making the gelatin or pudding. Add raisins, nuts, or fruit to each. Put only one item in each gelatin/pudding. 2. After each gelatin/pudding has set, remove it from its bowl and place in the larger bowl, baking dish, or cake pan. There should be a large three-story “earth.” 3. Take a straw and gently twist it straight down through all three layers. Stuck part way? Leave it where it is and try another straw somewhere else in the “earth.”

4. Carefully, gently, draw the straw out of the “earth.” With help from an adult, slit the straw open lengthwise and see what has been “cored” from the “earth.” Think About It Why did the straw get stuck before it reached the bottom? Why do geologists take more than one core sample of an area? Check out forgirls.girlscouts.org for other fun science experiments.

Science + Girl Scouts A R E C I P E F O R S U C C E S S ! Ask a parent or other adult to help you try this Paper Cup Walk experiment to make a platform with cups and pieces of cardboard that support your weight. Girl Scouts make science fun! Tell your Girl Scout Leader or parent you want to join us at one of our great science related events! You’ll need small paper drinking cups and two cardboard squares 24” x 24”.

1 Place one cardboard square on the floor, and put a bunch of cups face down on top of it. 2 When you think you have ENOUGH CUPS TO SUPPORT YOUR WEIGHT, put the other cardboard square on top. With a friend to spot you, carefully stand on the platform.

3 Did it hold you? If it did, try it using fewer cups. See how many cups you need to support you. Why do you think this works?


Girl Scouts CAN do anything! As a Girl Scout, you are going to have so much fun. You’ll make friends with other Girl Scouts. You’ll sing songs, play games, and have fun outdoors. And all along the way, you’ll be making the world a better place!
