The Ultimate 2021 Guide for Bridging from Girl Scout Daisy to Girl Scout Brownie

Bridging from Daisies to Brownies is an important Girl Scout milestone. This year more than ever, it needs to be recognized in a safe and big way. *This post contains affiliate links. Daisy leaders, take a bow. You not only survived learning how to lead a troop, this past year, you did it during a worldwide pandemic. Planning a Daisy to Brownie bridging ceremony is going to be a walk in the park compared to what you have been through this past year. Created by the author on Canva For many of you, this is your first Girl Scout bridging ceremony to plan. Planning one during a pandemic is going to be different than one planned during normal times. There are safety guidelines that need to be met and some are Council specific. Check with your local Council for guidelines and read this Girl Scout Bridging 2021 Guide on my main Girl Scout blog to see how you can start planning with safety in mind. A Word About Buying Uniforms I have never been a fan of leaders buying uniforms for their troops unless the troop is in a disadvantaged socio-economic area and this is the only way for the girls to afford a uniform. Over the years I have said this many times, parents need to have skin in the game. They buy cleats and other equipment for sports and shoes and leotards for dance and cheer. Why do Girl Scout leaders feel the need for the troop to pay for uniforms? Clip art by Clipartino on Etsy In my troop, I had one Daisy bridge and not sign up in the fall. Her parents bought her the vest and badges, so my troop was not out of the funds. Over the years, my troop of twelve has slimmed down to two. Never have I paid for any part of a uniform during a bridging year. We would have been out the funds if the troop did pay. People do not value free. It is also more work for you to get the correct sizes (and that means contacting and contacting and contacting some parents) so they can be ordered. While you can buy most of your Girl Scout Brownie uniform online at Boscov's, it is one more thing for you to do. I had my parents buy the vest/sash, flag, numerals and Council ID set. They gave it to me prior to the bridging ceremony. Uniforms and More Available at Boscov's Girl Scout Daisy to Brownie Bridging Ceremony Resources for Leaders Here are some useful links to help guide plan your Daisy to Brownie Bridging ceremony.

Remember to look at how long each video is...then reassure yourself that you've got this! Girl Scout Bridging Decorating Ideas I am a big believer in the adage "less is more". You do not have to go crazy with the rainbow theme. A few select pieces are all you will need to create the perfect atmosphere. Rainbow Table Covering One simple table covering sets the tone for you tablescape. Because we are in a pandemic, food will not be eaten. You can make pretty goody bags with rainbow goodies for each girl and place them on the table. See this blog post for ideas.
