Good turns in everyday gestures

Help Brownies realise how they treat others around them is important and that respect is a valuable gift.


  1. Get the Brownies to write the Brownie Guide Law on their jar, tube or box: ‘A Brownie Guide thinks of others before herself and does a Good Turn every day.’
  2. They can then decorate it with stickers or draw their own designs.
  3. Once completed, Brownies should take them home, write down any Good Turns they have done on pieces of paper and place them inside their capsule. They should bring their capsules to the next meeting.
  4. At the following meeting, hold a Pow-wow at which Brownies discuss the Good Turns they have done during the week.
