Opening (as usual)

(Note – have one of the parents or someone hide the index cards, hopefully outside.)

Activities:

Talk about the book – they explore Part 1 on their own, we’ll explore Part 2 in meetings.  Discuss “The Trail of the Three Keys”.  We’ll start searching for the First Key.

Quest

You: Brownies sit in a circle.  (Read leader book.)

  • Going ELF!  (Read leader book.)
  • Discovering Values (Have girls fill in page 50 in their books.)

Family:  Talk about accepting the Quest.  (Read the leader book.)

Notes

This is our first Journey.  We like the basic idea, but we wonder if we could do some of the activities a little better. For example, it recommends having the girls spend time writing in their books.  Some girls can easily write and like to write, but others not so much. Some understand what to do, and some have more questions.  So, maybe we could go through the topics orally, letting the girls follow along and write in their books if they want to do so.
