Grab ‘N’ Go: Mosaic of a Girl Scout

Girl SilhouetteWhat makes up a Girl Scout?

Use the sticky notes and write down characteristics that all Girl Scouts have such as honesty and courage.

With the help of others, can you cover the entire girl, creating a mosaic of an ideal Girl Scout?

Don’t have Girl Scouts? Use this for an ideal of anyone.

 

To do this activity at your own event or meeting, provide a paper doll, printed silhouette or other item to represent the ideal Girl Scout. Do not use real photos. You can make this the size of a sheet of paper or even get a donated life-size paper representation.
__________________________
Before the event, collect your materials:

  • Girl representative
  • Sticky notes
  • Pens or pencils

Let your participants brainstorm and cover the entire girl image.

Alternately, take a photo of the completed mosaic or collect the notes and share the ideals with your group.
