5 winter warmer ideas
Embrace the cold dark evenings with these fun and warming activities
The Christmas holidays might be over and the weather looking grey, but there’s plenty to look forward to as a new term of guiding begins
We know that planning activities with your girls is a great way to get them excited for the year ahead – and keep them in guiding for longer!
So what are you waiting for? If you still have a few gaps to fill, take inspiration from these five winter warmer activities (and pick up fun facts to impress girls with along the way).
1. Dance to carnival beats
Channel the sunshine, sparkle and beats of the world famous Rio Carnival, which takes place from 9-14 February. Celebrate by putting on your dancing shoes or trying samba drumming - you’ll be feeling the heat in no time.
2. Keep dry with arty umbrellas
Decorate umbrellas and put them to the test in the rain. You could turn a white umbrella into a stripy zebra, or a green one into a googly eyed frog – the (rainy) sky’s the limit.
3. Stay warm with a campfire
Sometimes the oldies are the best! Hold a traditional campfire complete with toasting marshmallows, singing songs and playing games while keeping warm and cosy around the fire.
