What do we need? Sleepover essentials
Posted on December 6, 2012 by Little Brownie Bakers
What kind of event will you plan so girls can experience the first-ever National Girl Scout Cookie Sleepover? It’s sure to be one-of-a-kind! Even though each group’s needs are different, there are a few essentials.
When is the Sleepover?
The Sleepover will be posted on www.littlebrownie.com on Jan. 12, 2013, at 8 p.m. The time is the same, no matter which time zone you are in.
How long will it last?
Approximately 60 minutes, including two, 10-minute “cookie breaks.”
What should girls do BEFORE the show?
At another meeting or as part of the activities before the online show begins…
- Girls will enjoy using 3D glasses to view parts of the show, but it’s not required. They can make their own 3D glasses, or you can provide them with store-bought 3D glasses and decorating supplies.
It’s completely optional, but girls will love practicing the “Samoas Shout” song and dance so they’re ready for the show’s finale. They can use the Sleepover rehearsal video. It makes a fun activity before the show begins. Alternatively, they can practice at a meeting in advance or you can send girls the link electronically.
What will we need DURING the show?
- An Internet connection and a computer to view the online video. If you have a large group, you might want to use a projector.
- One complete Sleepover Goal Guide for each girl (four sheets each), pens and coloring supplies. You can also use plain paper, if you prefer.
- If you would like girls to interact with the show using Twitter or Facebook, allow them to bring their personal cell phones, laptops or tablets with parent/guardian permission.
What if we want to hold the Sleepover at a different time?
You may contact your council about gaining access to the video on DVD for viewing at a different time.
Those are the essentials. Want to kick up the fun even more? Keep an eye on the Volunteer Blog. More Sleepover ideas are on the way!
