Lone Brownies Together

Katrine is a Brownie! Before we left the UK she was in the 1st Pitcaple Brownies and before that in the 1st Pitcaple Rainbows. When we moved to Singapore, she couldn’t get into a British unit so instead jumped across to the American Girl Scouts, both organisation are linked to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). Then we moved to Korea. There are no British Brownies here and the nearest American troop is about 2 hours a away so no use at all.

Which leaves us with three options.

1) She stops Brownies for a couple of years.

2) I set up a unit.

3) She becomes what is known as a lone Brownie, still gets to earn the badges etc but without a unit.

We have gone with option 3, and maybe option 2 if there are enough girls interested and I can get my act together to start a unit. There is another family here who are in the same situation so the two girls will be lone Brownies together. We went over to their house on Sunday, just for a play, and I took the Brownie information so we could plan what we wanted to do.

This wasn’t good enough for the girls and they wanted they first Ulsan Brownie meeting. We are working towards the Olympic patch, here they are hard at work designing their own sports kit.

 

Gregor and Amelia joined in (they will get the patch too though they are too young and Gregor is a boy!)

 

This is Katrine’s finished art work.

 

 

They then decided to have a mini carnival, which I think it looking forward to the 2016 games (with Sophia’s dad joining in the spirit).

 

 

Gregor chose not to participate in this activity. Instead he took himself off to play with marbles.

 

We are going to hold meeting on Saturday mornings, when the dads are at work. Any suggestions of other fun games/activities we could do?
