That last couple of days before the holiday break ends and she goes back to school! A rainy Saturday afternoon. A day where you’re just not into any more screen time OR you want to use screen time to do something that’s both fun and valuable. Need some suggestions? Try one of these fun activities with your daughter or the girl in your life:
Take a nature walk.
You don’t need to head out into the deep woods—the local park or somewhere you both enjoy will do just fine. Don’t forget to pack your favorite snacks for the road. Looking for an easy, on-the-go idea? Try our Apple Snacks or our Walking Salad.
Share your inspiration.
Talk to her about your role models or women you admire and ask her about the people who inspire her. Family members, friends, famous women in history—they’re all great choices. Encourage her to cut out pictures or draw. This booklet should help you get started (and leave her with something that reminds her of your special talk).
Turn your living room into an improv theater.
What does she want to be when she grows up? You might not need to answer that yet, but let her try some options out for the next five minutes. Get started with the Scene Spinner.
Get your science on in the backyard.
It’s amazing what wonders even the smallest outdoor spaces hold. Help her discover how much she can find by using our Flower Census or our Bug Census. Don’t forget to hit the computer and put your “field guide” together first. If you want to do more, head for the local nature preserve.
What will she do with Girl Scouts?
Does she want to be a spy on a mission? Meet her new best friend? Make a movie? Discover a new world above the treetops? Have her first sleepover? With us, the possibilities are endless, and your girl will have access to a huge variety of activities.
