This week we wanted to look at what makes us special and unique. In order to explore this idea the girls made memory boxes and our Brownie helper Rebecca read the Sparks a story about being themselves. Rebecca is working on her "Helping Sparks" Interest Badge. She decided to read the girls the story The Princess and the Pony. The Sparks loved it!
After the story the girls decorated wooden boxes and we took photos of each girl to put on the front. Inside the girls have started to collect special treasures that we hope to bring in later in the year to share with the group.
One very special thing we did before this project was to discuss nice words we could use to describe ourselves. Along with the craft supplies we had the girls add positive trait word stickers to their memory boxes. We hope that they feel empowered and proud when they open their memory boxes and read all of the kind words that describe them!
