I know I have mentioned it before that I am only one leader and I don’t have all the answers. Which is why I am writing this post. While scrolling through one of my favorite Facebook groups GreenGab, I came across some amazing Christmas Ideas from other leaders. The problem was I had to scroll for a long time to find them, and usually with Facebook post have a life of a week tops, depending how active the board is, then it is lost forever. With that said, I reached out to these amazing leaders to get permission to post their ideas on my blog, that way 365 days from now when Christmas rolls around again, I hope the pin or the emails I send out reminding you all of this post, will keep these ideas fresh for many years to come.
Time Capsule Christmas Ornament
When I came across this idea, I absolutely loved it, not just for Girl Scouts, but for my own child. How cool will it be in 5 to 10 years depending on your Troops age, getting open a note they wrote themselves, when they pull out their ornaments to put on their tree they will read that note don’t open till your 18th Christmas and on that year, they will read what they said to themselves many years before.
Message from Jennifer: “I had my girls (daisies and brownies) write a note of inspiration to their 18year old self… some said things like “always believe in yourself” “find your beauty within yourself” others said “I hope you got to sing at your graduation” and my littlest one only said “I love being a girl scout” these small notes of inspiration were rolled and tucked inside of the ornament along with some silver tinsel….. at 18 they will get to bust it open and read their note ♡
