We are having so much fun with this Girl Scout journey! Kate has even been coming up with extra crafts for us to do. I love that she’s taking some ownership over this. For our second session, we had a guest speaker. Mi madre! My mom has a spectacular garden so while we were over there this weekend she gave Kate a tour and talked to her about the garden in general and garden helpers (bees) specifically. Session 2 has a helpful bee so it seemed appropriate. Then we made a bee craft!
We made SWAPs (something with a pin) which apparently is a Girl Scout thing now. I’d never heard of them, I guess they’re all the rage. At any rate, I’ve seen loads of cute SWAPs holders on Pinterest. lol. I got the idea for these from this blog and they were super easy. I hot glued 3 yellow pom poms together, then we used a black pipe cleaner to attach it to the safety pin. We tied on some tule and we were done! Originally it was supposed to have googly eyes, but I couldn’t find any so I told Kate to just imagine that they had eyes. lol.
