Girl Scouts at Home: Figuring Out Fall Fun

We are fully into fall now and Girl Scouts of Colorado knows that many families are searching for fun, safe ways to celebrate the fall season. Whether it is reading spooky stories for Cadette Book Club, discussing fun ways to engage with the outdoors in Naturalist Club, or hosting a virtual camp-in at our Junior Jam Club, GSCO staff is embracing the season through our virtual clubs.

Need a game your Girl Scout can play virtually with her sisters or friends? Try Zoom Charades! Revamp traditional charades by using Halloween/fall/nature-themed topics.

The rules are easy:

  1. Divide up your meeting into two teams.

  2. Think of two fun fall-themed team names and have each girl add her team name into her Zoom name. This way, it is easy to keep track of who is on the two teams.

  3. Have the host of the meeting use the “private chat” feature to message one of the girls a fall charades action.

  4. Set a timer for 30-seconds and have the chosen girl mute her microphone and act out the charades action in the frame of the camera.

  5. Her teammates should try to guess the action before the time runs out.

  6. Make sure to switch back and forth between teams and allow everybody to have a chance!

Here are some action ideas to get you started:

  1. Making a s’more

  2. Navigating a corn maze

  3. Chopping firewood

  4. Picking apples at an orchard

  5. Raking and jumping into a pile of leaves

  6. Creating a scarecrow

How are you innovating your fall fun this year?

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.
