This year, Carver Cadette troop 80893 was determined to make local Girl Scouts celebrate more than Halloween on October 31. Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Low was born on this date in 1860, and Girl Scouts around the world celebrate Founder’s Day each year on her birthday. In honor of Juliette Gordon Low, troop 80893 threw a Halloween party with a Girl Scout twist for local younger Girl Scouts to teach them all about our founder.
The Cadettes decided they would each lead a station at the party. Upon arrival, girls traveled from station-to-station for some spooky and educational fun.
At the first station, Grace dressed up as Juliette Gordon Low; she taught girls all about the Girl Scouts founder, and shared stories about different Juliette-themed artifacts borrowed from the Girl Scout Museum in Waltham.
Then, girls went to Bella’s station for trivia with Halloween prizes.
Next was Becca’s spooky station, where girls made Girl Scout ghost lollipops!
At Violet’s station, they played games Juliette might have played with her girls, like hopscotch, and she put a festive spin on a classic—pin the sash on the Girl Scout!
Last but not least, the girls met Lexi, who planned a classic Halloween game with a Girl Scout twist. Instead of making mummies with toilet paper, the girls had to make bloomers, just like girls would have worn back in Juliette’s day.
After visiting all the stations, the girls came together to enjoy cupcakes and to sing happy birthday to Juliette.
It is so great to see girls spreading awareness of Founder’s Day! We are so proud of troop 80893 for planning a girl-led, interactive and educational party!
