Girl Guide Fun and Day 28!

Last night was Bring a Friend Night at my Girl Guide meeting.  Currently we only have 2 girls registered so we told them they could bring up to 5 friends each.  We had 3 friends show up last night and I have to say, what a great group of girls!  Despite going to different schools, the girls instantly clicked and had a great time together.  We started the meeting with a game and then proceeded to a craft.

I don't know if you've ever used Shrinky Dinks; but, the girls thought it was "cool".  Basically, Shrinky Dinks is a paper that you draw on and when you put it in the oven it shrinks down and becomes hard.  You can turn it into lots of different things, but we turned them into necklaces for the girls.  Each girl got to do 2 or 3 designs and they were so original.  I wish I had gotten pictures of them; but, we had a Nemo, an orange, a pair of cherries, shoes, names and of course the Girl Guides of Canada logo, the trefoil.

We finished the evening with snacks and a couple of songs.

I'm pretty sure we will have 2 of the 3 friends sign up to become Guides.  The third girl wants to join, but has a lot of activities already going on, so I'm not sure her parents will agree.  Either way, we had a great night.

Here is my Day 28 photo for the 365 challenge, it's a shot of the trefoil necklace I made last night.
