Throw a birthday party with your Girl Scout sisters!
There are plenty of ways to celebrate our 111th birthday. Create your own plan or find some ideas below. Happy Birthday to us!
- Host a tea party with your troop! The first 18 Girl Scouts gathered with Juliette Gordon Lowe on March 12, 1912 to have the first Girl Scout meeting while sipping tea. We love a good recreation!
- Host a service project by creating Birthday-in-a-bags to donate to children in local foster care, domestic violence shelters, or homeless shelters. Some items could include party hats, decorations like streamers, banners and balloons, candles, cake in a mug, frosting, a gift card and a handmade birthday card.
- Make new friends! Invite a non-Girl Scout member to your Girl Scout birthday party or your next troop meeting to show her all she has to look forward to as a Girl Scout!
Don't forget to show us how you're celebrating on social media for a chance to be featured through our channels!
