Many Girl Scouts and Girl Guides throughout the world will be celebrating World Thinking Day on February 22, 2009. I grew up participating in the Girl Scouts, first as a Brownie and then as a Junior. Therefore I am happy to write of this celebration on my blog.
How will you be celebrating?
Some of the troops are having a travel around the world event with some games and entertainment from representatives from other countries, Celtic, African Drum Circle, and other s for Mexico, China, Phillipines, and Egypt. They round it out with an ethnic Buffet.
Here, in the next day or so, I will post recipes from a few countries.
This is what my niece is doing for World Thinking Day.
Her troop participates in a council program for World Thinking Day. This year, they had to research a country (it alternates between states and countries). They chose Brazil. They had to come up with facts about the country to present to the other troops. They gave out little Brazilian candies, and the swap was little paper Carnavales masks they made and decorated with feathers and sequins.
