As we continue our efforts to flatten the curve of COVID-19 in Middle Tennessee, we hope girls are staying well both physically and emotionally. We know community and connection are vitally important to our emotional well-being, and much of our traditional Girl Scout programming is based on that idea. Though we can’t be together face-to-face, we want to encourage girls to stay engaged and involved with their communities and friends, so we’ve compiled a list of ways for girls to connect while social distancing at home!

Ideas To Do as a Troop

  1. Schedule a virtual movie night and watch a movie at the same time!
  2. Sign up for an online exercise class and work out together.
  3. Work on completing the Council’s Own Virtual Girl Scouts patch together.
  4. Host a virtual craft night and make artwork using the same materials.
  5. Write notes to your troop leader to let them know how much you appreciate them.
  6. Brainstorm ideas for how to help the community during and after the “Safer at Home” order.

Ideas To Do as an Individual

  1. Write a story about your experience of staying at home.
  2. Go on a neighborhood walk and participate in a sound scavenger hunt.
  3. Work with an adult to cook a meal for your household.
  4. Participate in Girl Scout “mischief” and hide kind notes to members of your household.
  5. Chalk your walk or make a sign for your window with positive messages for anyone passing by to see.
  6. Earn a Performance, Storytelling, Investigation, or Cooking badge with our Virtual Badge Blast recordings.
