Watch out soon for a post about movie & pizza selection. We pride ourselves at Carrum Girl Guides to ensure that the girls have had as much input into our events as we can. We will list PG & G rated movies here for you to select your choice. The one with the most votes will be played at our sleepover.
We also will ask for your pizza selection, so that we can make sure all dietary requirements are covered.
Many thanks Bickie……..
Gumnuts & Juniors, bring a friend along to gumnuts & junior guides on Tuesday night. We would love to share the girl guides with a friend.
Special Note to Juniors: – please bring along one friend only. As you can appreciate if I have 10-15 new little ones it can get a little hectic quickly……..
In 2018, the ANZAC Day ‘Saluting their Service’ Badge will focus on life at home during times of war. Guides are encouraged to conduct research or undertake activities focusing on life at home during times of war.

According to the blog posts, it looks like we could do with a bit of Girl Guide representation for the last shift 2:30-4pm including a bit of help from some tall people (grown ups?) for a quick pack up of the marquee!
Guides who volunteer will be helping any little people to do the activities planned. It’s a great event to show off the leadership skills that are being developed through guiding – not to mention SO much fun!
The weather looks like it’s not going to be too uncomfortable, after all. It should be a great day.
Junior & Gumnut Guides are making these for Easter Craft!
Please bring along next week a washed, cleaned & dry 400g tin (crushed tomatoes or fruit). We will be spray painting them in preparation for Tuesday 20th March.
Can I request a parent to source some bulbs or seedlings to use in this craft. Please see Bickie before purchasing.
Parent helpers needed – so far we have 1 parent helping, we need 2 more (1 for gumnuts & 1 more for juniors)
