Breathe Journey Resource

When investigating the different types of air pollution, the material can get a bit dry and technical. These pollution trading cards present the information in a format that might keep the interest of middle schoolers a bit longer than usual! The originals can be found here and I plan to cut and laminate these for my girls.

Coronado National Forest (Fire Prevention)

Les Harmon
Santa Catalina Ranger District
5700 N Sabino Canyon Road

My group of bridging Juniors and Cadettes were up on the mountain at Rose Canyon Lake this last weekend. Les and a colleague brought up a forest fire rig and crew and spoke to my girls about what they do, the education it takes to have their jobs as well as how the air around them affects their job and the fires they monitor or fight. We were working through the Breathe Journey. My girls loved speaking with the group (2 of the 5 were women) and Les said they would be happy to meet with other troops either on the mountain or at the Sabino Canyon location.

PS - they LOVE Girl Scout cookies!!!!

Games, Rainy Days and Story Starters

Since my first year of becoming a Girl Scout Leader I've used these cards! They are awesome when girls finish our activities early or things just don't go as planned. There's also those occasions when I just don't have the brain power to come up with something fabulous! You can print them on card stock and put them on a ring to make them more compact and portable. I found these on

Last Minute Projects

What do you do when you realize it's troop night and you have about an hour to prepare?! How about a fun, relaxing craft night? Girls LOVE to craft with no goals of earning badges or patches sometimes. Having fun and working together builds sisterhood and bonds our girls' friendships even further.

Friday, we found some ring bases and the girls got super creative with glass beads, rhinestones, buttons and glue. Our Mother's Day rings turned out FABULOUS! Who knew 5th through 7th graders could be so creative? Ok, me!

So, what do you do for last minutes ideas?????
