I’ve been a Girl Guide since age 7.  As and adult I’ve been a Brownie Guider, a Guide Guider and I’m currently a Pathfinder and Ranger Guider.

My daughter started in my Ranger unit this year.  The adventure continues.

I’ve been fortunate to had passed down to me a great wealth of guiding information.  Some of it is stale  dated but much of it is still useful and relevant.  I hope to use this blog to pass this information on to those who are looking for new ideas to use in their units and to pass on new ideas that come across my path.

I’m not sure how the start of Girls First will effect my posting.  But when I do post it will be in the following pattern:

  • Monday – Program Activities
  • Tuesday – Potpourri
  • Wednesday – Readings, Games and Crafts
  • Thursday – Meeting Plans
  • Friday – Challenges

    Thank you so much for this blog!!! It is so unbelievably resourceful and exactly what I needed. I am just entering my second year of Guides with my daughter in Winnipeg, Manitoba and I was struggling. I am not a crafty mom and rely heavily on others to help me through! lol
    Just wanted to say THANK YOU again!

  2. Hi there. I am a Guider in Canada and am working on some resources for Guides’ Own. I wanted to acknowledge your excellent “Planner” but couldn’t find out who you were. Should I just include a link to your WordPress site? Keep up the good work.

    love this blog thank you
    I am wondering how I may be able to locate some Famous 5 Badges.

    • The Famous 5 badges are sold by the Alberta Provincial office. But I believe all the provincial offices are currently closed due to the Covid-19 crisis. You might try the Girl Guide Buy and Sell group of Facebook to see if any units have extras they are selling.
