With the end of the year quickly approaching, many leaders are planning their end of year celebrations or possible bridging ceremonies. We typically like to give our Girl Scouts a gift at the end of the year. Here are some great gift ideas for your Girl Scout troop at the end of the year, but they're also great for beginning of the year or holiday season as well!
T shirts are great gifts and they will likely be used by the girls for a few years. It'll be a nice memento for them to keep, even after their Girl Scouting years are over. There are some shirts you can buy from the Girl Scout shop but you can also make your own.
A memory book is a great idea, especially if your girls are bridging to a new level. Whether it's a Brownie Memory Book or Junior one, they make great gifts at the end of the year, beginning of the year, or during the holidays.
If you're like me, you have taken hundreds of picture each year. We've given decorated frames like these and painted them their level's color (blue for Daisies, brown for Brownies, and so on). Then you can put a group picture in it or you can have the girls pose for photos during your party that they can place in the frame.
If you are bridging at your end of the year party, then a Certificate makes a nice touch. You can print one of the free printable ones we have on the site and use a nice cardstock. It makes the end of the year/bridging that much more special for the girls.
We hope you have a great end of year celebration. You all deserve it!
