Coloring Sheet and Snack (We used orange foods like oranges and carrots)
Spent the first 15 minutes coloring and eating.
We then did our Opening Circle, Promise, and Song.
New Business – I passed out new folders for each girl. It is for their important papers to and from parents. Also, they can put their artwork in there after they are finished. Keeps it nice in their bag and mom is sure to check for it.
We read Mari’s Story to learn about this petal/law. We discussed the story at the end and talked about responsibility.
Group Project – I made this flower from a paper plate. We discussed what types of rules we should follow at a meeting. Since we were meeting in a new place, I wanted to go over the rules with them. They came up with these. And they wrote their name in the middle as their promise to follow them. I plan to bring this to each meeting so that we can remember the rules.
Crumpled Heart – I cut hearts from pink printer paper and had each girl crumple them. I told that that when we break a promise or do something that is hurtful to others, (represented by crumpling that paper), saying sorry doesn’t always fix it (trying to smooth it out and put bandaids on it). So it is better to act responsibly and not do the hurtful action to begin with.
Tissue Paper Marigolds – Cut 8-10 circles from tissue paper. Fray the edges by making small cuts. Crumple each one and smooth out again. Make hole in middle. Put pipe cleaner through. Crimp on both sides so it stays.These were cool, but lots of adult help was needed as we didn’t have enough scissors and had to help them get the cutting done.
It was a fun meeting, smaller group, new meeting place.
