Brownie Thinking Day Celebrations at Wolstanton on Friday 17th February 2017
Three leaders and ten Brownies attended Wolstanton Methodist Church to join in Thinking Day Celebrations with Guides, other Brownies and Rainbows from the Newcastle Division.
Thinking Day is the 22nd February when all Brownies think about other Brownies from around the world. This day was chosen as it was the founder`s birthday.
The girls were split into groups and took part in a cooking activity, some games and two craft sessions representing the four seasons . We then all came together and had a parade of the flags and renewed our promises. It was good for the girls to mix with other members of the organisation and everyone said how much they enjoyed the evening.
At the end of the evening each girl was presented with one of the World Thinking Day Badges for 2017.
