Our Brownies are doing the Toymaker badge right now, and it's taking a lot of concentration. One of the leaders is running the badge and has chosen to have the girls make a doll from scratch, complete with clothes.

They will look just beautiful when finished, but my it's hard getting 25 girls to master running stitch! On my table I had six girls: one was very good, one was pretty good, one better than she thought, another had no interest whatsoever, the fifth was keen but random and the sixth just couldn't get her fingers to do what I was telling her no matter how many times I showed her a couple of stitches very very slowly!

The leader actually cut out all the pieces for the dolls, it took her a whole day - it'll pay off when we see the gorgeous results but there's a lot of concentrating between now and then.
