In 2017, WAGGGS would like to grow the World Thinking Day celebrations, and invite more girls to experience what it means to be part of the Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting Movement!
This year’s WAGGGS theme is ‘GROW’ and is about growing in conﬁdence, collaboration, friendship, and growing plants to symbolise this.
During this "Special Focus meeting" Brownies will be planting the “seeds of change” during the meeting (It may wish to complete this programme over a number of weeks)
The idea is to collect the seeds to "plant a tree" by completing four sections the Roots, the Trunk, the Branches and the Flowers and Fruits.
Brownie Branch have outlined below some ideas to help you on your way to ﬁnd the seeds.
WAGGGS have created a Grow pack which is available online at
Help the girls make a World Thinking Day money at least three weeks prior to the special meeting.(NO 7 WORLD THINKING DAY FUND - Choice challenge 24(see attached file)
Section 1 : ROOTS

Section 2: TRUNK
Design a new game (see page 19 and 20 for additional information)
Give each Six a bag of props or a single prop for example Frisbee, Bean bags, Skipping ropes, Balls.
