Every summer our troop meets at a local park since we normally meet at a school and don’t have access when school is out. Not to mention who wants cooped up in a school when it is SUMMER! So for our first meeting I just wanted the girls to have fun putting lots of thought into it I decided we would be as active as we could. (Unfortunately only 4 girls showed up to this meeting but it was still fun (-: )
We began with
Jump Rope ten times then the Long Jump: Run until they get to the hula hoop then jump as far as they can Ms. Erin will then use a ribbon to measure.
I never saw it coming but all the girls kept falling luckily no one was hurt and they all laughed it off, my little pea falls all the time so it wasn’t new to her but boy she she love seeing the other girls do the same as her!
Simple Running with a partner from tree to tree three times
Hula Hoop who can do hoop the longest best out of three chances
They loved this and I loved getting them so active so we decided this is how we will always have our first meeting after summer break!
Snacks: Water bottles, apples, oranges and gold fish crackers although it was so hot that day the water bottles were used in a more fun way (-: Since we were short half our troop we were done way early so the girls just let loose!
Here’s a print out of our activities if you want to have it, it was simple, clean and the girls had a lot of fun!
