This year my troops were set up into 3 stations:
1. Write a Holiday note to a fellow troop - I supplied Holiday Cards from the dollar store (24 in a box)
2. Make a Christmas Ornament
3. Make a Holiday Gift for your parents
This year we simply wrapped and taped the frames in tissue paper. I gave each girl a pretty Holiday bag from the dollar store. They had lovely bags 2/$1! The bags were good for transporting their goodies home as well. Last year we concentrated on wrapping. It was a great opportunity for the girls to learn how to wrap. I incorporated the wrapping table as one of the stations. I brought boxes of all sizes for the girls to wrap. I offered them tips and patiently helped them wrap until they felt comfortable to wrap their special gift. Wrapping is a learned skill. While practice helps you perfect the art, every girl should be taught how to wrap. Sadly it is slowly beaching a lost art with all the bags and decorated boxes that are now available.
My co-leader and I always like to give the girls a small gift for the Holidays. Lat year we found elf hats 2/$1 at the dollar store. This is our "Look there is Santa!" photo:
