Last night was our end of year celebration for my Brownie troop. The majority of the of my Brownies voted on having a “candy” party at the park. They wanted to eat candy, play games, to have no parents or siblings in attendance, have music to eat pizza and have more candy.
I went to target and bought brightly colored plates, napkins, tablecloths and cutlery that all went in line with their “candy” theme. I bought popcorn, cookies and of course, candy. My head was spinning walking through the candy aisle. I had text my co-leader to refocus. I kept walking through the aisle, I couldn’t think anymore. Not only is this stuff unhealthy, it’s expensive.
Thanks to her, I was able to refocus and complete the shopping. I ordered 2 pizzas from Costco and (for my sanity) bought a veggie and fruit tray, which almost all the girls ate.
Here’s my agenda for the party:
Pre-meeting: 15 minutes/6:15-6:30
Playtime at the playground
Opening: 5 minutes/6:30-6:35
Flag, Promise and Law
Snack/Dinner: 30 minutes/6:35-7:05
Pizza time/Candy time
Games/crafts: 25 minutes/7:05-7:30
Make Felt Pipe Cleaner bubble wands and have some bubble time
Family/Closing Time: 15 minutes/7:30-7:45
Pass out Badge Bags
Special Thank You’s to parents who went above and beyond
Here’s how the party actually went:
Bubble time (without the pipe cleaner bubble wand craft) playtime at the park, eat, playtime at the park, get badge bags, special thank you’s and it was over.
