It's been a LONG time since I've been to PP, well, iVillage now. (See how long it's been?) Anyway, I have a 9 year old boy and a 5 year old girl. I'm the Advancement Chair for the Cub Scout pack and the co-leader for my daughter's Daisy troop. The third week of the month I have scout related meetings FOUR NIGHTS IN A ROW. I'm beginning to feel overwhelmed, and Daisies just started.
We are doing the girls' investiture next week and the next meeting I am on my own as the leader will be at cookie training with the cookie mom. *note, other moms do stay at the meetings. Thankfully our troop is small, only 7 girls and we have yet to have all 7 at a meeting together.
Anyway, I am looking to start the Daisy flower garden with the girls in December and while I like the story and the activities to go with it, what other suggestions do you have for activities that are ACTIVE? The girls love to move. Heck, I made the Promise into a hopscotch activity to help the girls learn it so that they would be up and moving. (It was a HIT too!) Any activity suggestions that I can utilize to go with the flower garden journey and tie in the petals too? I guess we get to be Daisies for 2 years now so we can do the other journey next year.
Thoughts and suggestions are most appreciated. And if anyone can tell me how to find some balance between scouting responsibilities, being a mom, and working full time, I am all ears. Thank goodness sports don't start up until the spring!
