1. Each Guide has a piece of card pinned to back of her hoodie or sash with a safety pin.
2. Guides write something positive about one another, based on actions during the meeting if possible.
3. At the end of the meeting, or after an allotted time, Guides can remove them and read them. They can be placed in Guide folders and/or taken home as positive reinforcements for tougher times!
