World Thinking Day is celebrated by Girl Guides around the world, and has taken place annually since 1926. It’s a day when everyone in Guiding across the world explores and celebrates how we’re all part of a bigger movement, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.

This year, it was suggested  that the Girl Guiding units in Bradley Stoke and Winterbourne should get together to celebrate.

There were seven units participating in the event, which included Rainbows, Brownies and Guides, and all their leaders, totalling over 150 people celebrating together at Meadowbrook Primary School.

Each Guiding unit was allocated a region of the world and had to include a number of activities, relating to their region, to entertain all the girls, aged from 5-15! Regions represented were the Arab region, Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas. Other tasks included Thinking Day activities and Girl Guiding Promise activities.

The activities definitely kept the girls occupied and were nicely varied. Africa included colouring in tribal masks and basket weaving, Asia had origami butterflies and creating Chinese fans. The Arab regions included henna designing and star weaving, the Americas had traditional American Camp songs and creating maracas. At the Europe stop you’d create Norwegian heart baskets and windmills. And much more!

As leaders, we manned our stations and tried to keep up with the endless supply of girls who wanted to take part in each and every activity. Some units had created passports to be taken to each stand to be stamped, others created small bags for the girls to keep their creations in.
