For Thinking Day this year we held a bring a parent night. We made all the parents honourary Guides for the night. They even marched into horseshoe with their girls.
We based the meeting around this years WAGGGS Thinking Day Challenge Grow.
After horseshoe we all played CABAÑA, GUEST, or VOLCANO to complete the roots section. Then we split into three groups for a round robin.
The first station was run by a Guider originally from Holland who taught them a party game where you eat snack bread off a string while blindfolded. Everyone also got to try the snack bread she’d made.
The second station was the Grow your collaboration game from the challenge pack. We ran that out in the hallway where we could set up a good maze of wool. The girls and parents went though the maze three times, once on their own. Once holding hands with a partner. And once holding hands with one partner blindfolded.
The final station was our seeds stop, were the girls made seed heads (instructions soon) with the help of their parents.
After the round robin we had a badge presentation for all the badges the girls have earned since enrollment. It was nice to have the parents there for that.
