Making Games [Meeting 1]OverviewNote to VolunteersA few agenda activities in this meeting plan have two options—one that can be done inside andone to be done outside (Get Girls Outside!). Carefully read through both activity options andchoose one to add to your meeting plan agenda. Please note all PDF-printed documents listthe description and materials required for both the inside and outside options—you willonly need to purchase materials for one option.Meeting 1 activities can be done inside a meeting room setting, large enough for girls to movearound. For meeting 2, try to take girls outside to an open area—a park or field. The excitementand fast pace of running troop meetings for the first time can sometimes leave us tongue-tied.For that reason, scripting is included for guiding girls through a meeting; these "lines" are underthe heading "SAY." However, you know your girls best. If you feel you don't need the script, dowhat makes sense for you and your girls.Prepare Ahead Have healthy snacks available for snack timeCollect shoeboxes, enough for each group of girls. Cut a hole big enough for a girl toslide her hand in on the bottom of the box.Get Help from Your Friends and Family NetworkYour Friends and Family Network can include: Girls’ parents, aunts, uncles, older siblings, etc. Other volunteers who have offered to help with the meeting.Ask your network to help: Make snacks Welcome girls to the meeting Supply materials for the sessionMeeting Length90 minutesThe times given for each activity will be different, depending on how many girls are in the troop.Plus, girls may really enjoy a particular activity and want to continue past the allotted time. Asmuch as possible, let them! That's part of keeping Girl Scouting girl-led! And what do you do ifyou only have an hour for the meeting? Simply omit some of the activities.MaterialsActivity 1: As Girls Arrive PaperPencils, crayons, markers 2016 GSUSA. All rights reserved. Not for commercial use.
