Paper and Bead Brooch

A class, B class, C class, Classes, D class, Teachers No Comments »
Total Time 2 to 3 hoursAges tween

Create a chic pin from an ordinary piece of cardboard, decorative paper, buttons, and beads.

What you'll need

  • Thin cardboard (we used a section of an empty shoe box)
  • Decorative paper
  • Craft glue
  • Paintbrush
  • Mod Podge Sparkle
  • Seed and jewelry beads
  • Thumbtack
  • 26-gauge jewelry wire
  • Needle-nose pliers
  • Buttons or jewels
  • Pin back

How to make it

  1. Cut a shape from the cardboard, then cut a piece of decorative paper large enough to cover it. Glue the paper to the front of the board and fold back the excess. Brush on a thin layer of Mod Podge Sparkle and let it dry.

  2. To add a strand of beads, use the thumbtack to poke a hole in the bottom of the brooch. Cut the wire to the desired length, plus 1/2 inch. Insert the wire through the hole so that 1/4 inch sticks out the front. Use the pliers to twist this piece around the longer length of wire and then press it against the back of the cardboard.

  3. Thread on the beads, then twist the bottom of the wire into a knot to keep them in place. After adding the last strand of beads, glue another swatch of decorative paper to the back of the brooch to conceal the wire ends.

  4. Glue on buttons or jewels, then glue on the pin back.

Pass the Mirror

A class, B class, C class, Classes, D class, Teachers No Comments »

Girl Scout troop leaders are experts at entertaining packs of kids. We reached out to Girl Scout volunteers across the nation, asking for their best group activities. A flood of inspiring stories and ingenious ideas came in from hundreds of troops. Here's one of our favorites.

TROOP: Daisy Troop 1486
HOMETOWN: Maricopa, Arizona
LEADERS: Carrie Bentley and Jenny Blackford

What They Did: The girls sat in a circle and played the deceptively simple game of Pass the Mirror.

Why They Love This Idea: The game paves the way for future kindnesses. "From then on," says Carrie, "I noticed them complimenting each other more, saying things like, 'You played that game really well,' and my favorite, 'You're a great friend to me.'"

What you'll need
  • Handheld mirror

How to play

  1. Have your group of kids sit in a circle and pass around a small handheld mirror. Each person takes a turn saying one nice thing about herself on the outside ("I have pretty freckles") and one nice thing about herself on the inside ("I am a good friend").

Shut the Box

A class, B class, C class, Classes, D class, Teachers No Comments »

Once your kids get hooked on this classic strategy game, you'll want to have dice, paper, and a pen with you any time you leave the house.

How to play
  1. To start, a player writes the numbers 1 through 9 on a sheet of paper and rolls the dice. He then crosses out one or more numbers that add up to the roll. For example, if he rolls an 8, he can cross out the 8, or the 6 and the 2, the 7 and the 1, or the 5 and the 3.

  2. After the numbers 6 and up are crossed off, the player can choose to roll just one die. If the player manages to cross off all of the numbers, he's "shut the box." If he can't match a roll to the remaining numbers, his turn ends, and any uncrossed numbers are added to his score (the lower the score, the better!).

  3. The next player then plays with a fresh set of numbers. Players alternate rounds until one player's score reaches 50. The other player is the winner.

This fun physical challenge tests your spelling skills and your flexibility, and makes a great activity for kids during your Thanksgiving get-together.


How to play
  1. Body English Game

    To play, divide guests into two groups, then have the groups take turns using their bodies (no hand signals or signs allowed) to spell out words for the opposing team to decipher. Start with simple, holiday-related words such as pie or thanks, then move on to longer words or phrases as the group's skills improve.

Coffee Can Drum

Classes, Teachers No Comments »



Kids love music and banging on pots, pans, and plastic containers. Combine their creativity with their musical talent by making this adorable homemade drum. For more great crafts and activities for kids, check out our Camp Crafts, Summer Crafts, and Classic Kids' Crafts.

What you'll need
  • Aluminum coffee can with plastic lid
  • 2 sheets yellow construction paper
  • 1 sheet tan felt
  • ½ sheet magenta felt
  • Magenta yarn
  • 1 rubber band
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • White craft glue
  • 2 wooden dowels
  • 2 small foam balls
  • Blue yarn
Helpful Tip:

To take this project to the next level, have a parent poke a hole on each side of the coffee can before you begin. After pasting on the construction paper, find the holes and poke through, then thread a long piece of cord or yarn through both sides to create a band to go around your neck. Secure the ends by tying then together inside the can then complete the project. The colors chosen for this project are optional; make your drum personal by choosing your own colors. Be absolutely sure that you allow the project to dry completely (overnight is best) before playing your drum. If you don't allow enough time, the drumsticks may fall apart.

How to make it

  1. Remove lid from coffee can and set aside for a later step.

  2. Cover the side of the can with yellow construction paper. Use glue stick to apply glue all over construction paper then press on to the coffee can.

  3. Using the white craft glue, "draw" diagonal lines onto the yellow construction paper. Start at the bottom, go up at a slant to the top, and then go down from there at a slant, creating a triangle. Continue this pattern all the way around the can.

  4. Using magenta colored yarn, follow the glue lines and apply to the can. Do not cut the yarn into pieces; simply follow the lines, gently pressing the yarn into the glue as you go. Cut only once at the end.

  5. Lay tan felt on the work surface.

  6. Pipe white glue around and on the top of the plastic lid.

  7. Place the plastic lid upside down in the center of the tan felt.

  8. Use scissors to trim around the plastic lid, leaving a 1-2" border.

  9. Place the felt-covered plastic lid onto the coffee can and secure.

  10. Wrap the rubber band around the coffee can, securing the tan felt border to the side of the can. Gently pull the felt tight so that the top is smooth.

  11. Cut two ½-inch wide strips from the magenta felt, enough to go around the coffee can at the bottom as well as at the top, around the tan felt, covering the rubber band. Glue in place with white craft glue.

  12. To make the drumsticks, gently insert the end of a dowel into the foam ball. If you press too hard and the dowel goes through, just glue it back together.

  13. Remove the dowel, and then add some white glue to the hole. Reinsert the dowel.

  14. Cover the foam ball with white glue and wrap blue yarn around it until the ball is completely covered. (See image.)

  15. Put some glue on the dowel just below the ball and wrap some excess yarn around it. Trim and smooth in place with your fingers, be sure the end of the yarn isn't sticking out.

  16. Allow everything to dry before playing your new drum!
