THERE is not a Girl Guide leader among us who doesn't go with a theme and then throw a whole heap of Guiding skills into the mix. It is kinda sneaky, but this week the unit I lead was feelin' a whole lot of Valentine's Day love and none of the badgework boredom. See if you can't spot the, let's say, educational benefits . . .
APOLOGIES to the Danish among us, but our take on gaekkebrev, or veiled jokes as Valentine's Day cards was to create a little Girl Guide - wearing our yet to be released new Australian uniform. You poke your fingers through the holes and she jumps and dances like a puppet. The gag, written in Morse code on the back, read: "You make me jump for joy".
Hmmm, a sneaky little bit of Morse code work and a plug for the new Girl Guide uniform. Shameless.
AND here, a sweet little love knot card - our take on the Scottish tradition of giving a love knot to your Valentine. Ha, that's no sweet card, that's a reef knot three times over, baby.
Happy Valentine's Day . . . learn something new, and impress your true love.
