Girl Scouting at home: Two for One

Submitted by Christine Redman

Mountain Communities


My daughter is a Junior! We live in a small community in Walden where we have a multi-level troop of 19 girls. Since everything is shut down, we have been unable to see our girls and we have encouraged them to continue working on badges from home. We are communicating with the families through our private Facebook page and I share posts daily. My daughter started a writing project in January with her class. Part of the requirement was to build a diorama. We used resources from our local Family Dollar, ordered items through Amazon, and found whatever household items we had, including acrylic paints and an empty Girl Scout Cookie case. Her animal habitat project looks amazing! While completing her required school project through remote learning, she also completed a requirement for her Animal Habitats badge!

To complete this project, she definitely used her resources wisely and thought like a Girl Scout!

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
