Thinking Day 2018

February 22nd is a special day for members of Girlguiding. This day, known as Thinking Day, is celebrated by Guides and Scouts across the world and is used by many to learn about Guides in other countries and to remake their promise.

North West Division Celebrations

North West Division held Thinking Day events for Rainbows, Brownies and Guides on Saturday 24th Feb.

Rainbows collected their passports to travel round the world to the five world centres. Activities included games, crafts, science and dancing.

Brownies undertook activities using the letters of the word IMPACT. Activities included Indian dancing, Magic show, Promise knots, Action games, candles and being together.

Guides had a theme of coming together. They did team building exercises and friendship bracelets which were then swapped with another guide. They also tested their guiding knowledge with a scavenger quiz.

At the end, each section got together and renewed their promise.

What did the girls say?

I really enjoyed the World thinking day event my favourite activities were the magic show and the Bollywood dancing it was so fun! It was a great experience I would definitely do it again!
Betsy – 48th Brownies

I really enjoyed the North West Glasgow Thinking day event in Scotsoun Parish church; I enjoyed making the friendship bracelets and then having to swap them at the end. We did a few other activities in different groups of five, such as; a treasure hunt/quiz hunts, where to win, we had to say our promise. Then we got a packet of 15 balloons and had to blow them up and stack them as high as we could, at the end of the day we renewed our promise then sang taps. A big thank you to all the leaders who were involved in this years thinking day event, well done!
Emma – 124th Guides

What the leaders say

It was great seeing the rainbows coming together meeting other rainbows from the division. They enjoyed traveling to the different countries to visit the world centres and especially enjoyed making volcanos!
