WoW: Brownies SHARE Water on the Wonders of Water Journey

Our final meeting on the WoW journey did not end up being the final meeting on our Snacks or Household Elf badges, but that’s okay, the girls really seemed to enjoy our project.

We made our sweet snack before beginning the project. I had intended to do sweet and savory together, but I decided that was pushing things and I’d loose the girls long before we ever got through. I actually had all seven there, and I barely kept them all involved around a single recipe for one snack. All in all, good call to put off savory.

We made crescent roll cinnamon twists, which I found here, and the girls all seemed to enjoy them. It was simple, quick, but there was enough to do in one recipe that they all got to help.

While they were cooking, we moved on to our projected.

We collected quite a bit of reusable trash to use as materials, and each girl designed a 12″ x 12″ sign (a white scrapbook page) about why water is important. Each girl came up with her own focus and used markers and glue to put the sign together. I sent them all out on a mission to find somewhere willing to display their sign at least until March 22, World Water Day, to share what they’ve learned with the community and get as many people as possible thinking about the importance of water.

The final piece of the Household Elf badge was making a homemade air freshener, which I had the materials for, should have been an easy, five to ten minute activity (depending on how many times I had to get their attention), but we just didn’t have time. We’ll work it in later.
