Girl Scout Thinking Day

Our troop participated in our immediate area’s “Thinking Day” on Saturday.  My troop had Portugal for their country.  

Each troop had to make a display to teach about the country, a food/drink from the country, a “swap” (trinket), and a craft/game.  All of these things helped them learn about the country and to teach others.

We had little Portuguese flag pins for our swap, churros for our food, and
learning to play “snail” (which is a 1 legged jumping game) for our activity.

I think there were 35 different countries to learn about.  It was SO crowded and that was with limited number of attendees!  I think the girls had a lot of fun, not sure how much they learned.  (I learned that almost every country brought something that was 100% pure sugar, lol).  The girls were super hyper from all of the sugar, which I am sure their parents appreciated before lunch on a Saturday morning 😉
