This past summer (2014) Troop 1391 had their first full weekend at camp and it was a blast rain and all these girls had fun!

Getting ready for our first full weekend I made fire starters, tested out the crafts we made t-shirt bags so I used mine as the charades game holder! We made dog tags and sharpie tie die t-shirts too.  We also made bug jars and had bug catchers and little magnifying glasses to look at but not keep the bugs (-:

 Our first night we watched movies and had popcorn while each of the girls arrived.  Some of the girls went on a hike while it was day light too.  And of course they played a mean game of charades!

The next day though they all went out Ms Lisa and Ms Erin took them during the day and then Ms Lisa and I took them for their night hike!

Here is our camp menu  CAMP MENU   and a letter for the parents on  What To bring    Now what we did with the walking tacos….we made it like a to go lunch in case parents came early it wouldn’t keep them from getting on the road.

My whole troop cleaned the cabin and it sparkled I really believe we were the first ones there in quite some time because it was not in good shape either.  I am proud of my girls for taking the time to clean it up and make it wonderful for the next troop.

After the troop left; the peas and I stayed and clean the fire pit up (this was almost 2 hours of hard work but we did it!), when we got there it was in horrible condition looks like the last people to use it never cleaned it out and it sat all winter.   The youngest pea cleaned out all the chunks of wood laying around and the oldest pea helped me move the old ashes.  Remember as a Scout you must leave things better than they were when you got there.

Here is a list of things I needed to make our weekend a success it may help you too!

NEEDED FOOD-CRAFT SUPPLIES FOR CAMP

DIY Girl Scout Idea Book

I made this book for easy reference to all my Girl Scout Ideas. It’s similar to my Garden Journal and I even made one last year for all my Christmas ideas.

Just like the others it just takes some scrapbook paper and a composition book.  I have even thought about having my troop make smash books this way.  Super cheap and lots of fun!

For this one I put a post it note on the inside page along with an envelope for all my receipts and as you know if you are involved in any troop you will have LOTS of receipts!

rtyu

As you all know I absolutely love pinterest so I printed out my boards and taped the things I absolutely want the girls to try inside the pages.

I added tabs for each of the topics I have random ideas for and I just write them in when I think of it.

On the last page, the Girl Scout Promise nad the Girl Scout Law along with another envelope because I needed it !

And last but not least I added a green ribbon to close the book  (see first pic above) so my pages don’t get all messy…I hate messy pages (- : and a book mark too!

Super easy and fast to make I use it ALL the time let me know if you make one too!

Spring Fever – Setting up a Garden Journal

Oh I have caught Spring Fever for sure!

I have gardening and yard work on the brain, I can not wait for the weather to break and the sun to shine so we can start planting.  But until then I will start planning.  And I can’t plan without an awesome Garden Journal/Smash Book.

So I made one that I love (even made my friend Deb one too so we can compare notes she is my garden guru after all)

Here is mine: It’s pretty simple just some scrapbook paper and stickers covering a composition notebook like this one

And some matching ribbon of course (-:

Some pictures of my peas in the front because they are so darn cute!

IMAG2577

I clipped the seed packets to the front so I know what I liked from previous years I may tape them on the pages soon to make it easier to see them.

IMAG2567

Some articles I liked in magazines so I could recycle what I did not need

IMAG2569

A map that shows when to plant is always good and an envelope in the back for receipts and whatnot.

Covered the back with more scrap paper and there you have it now I can daydream and plan!

It might not be spring yet but I am sure ready!  I will just keep on planning (-:
