Planning with the girls

We've tried all kinds of planning with the girls:
*pow wow - the classic brownie way but can lead to a few dominant girls taking over. This is how we last surveyed them, and wrote down everything.
*fill in a (short) form

This term, mostly because we ran out of time, we emailed the parents and asked them to ask their girls one thing they would like to do.

We got 9 replies (out of 25) so not the ideal way to take all opinions on board but enough to get us started.

Here's what they wanted:
A - origami and cooking
B  - more badges, cooking and a brownie holiday
C - 3D origami animals
D - calendar
E - rock climbing
F - arts and crafts
G - onesie challenge
H - Making clay models, Circle time about friendship (what makes a good friend etc), A local visit, e.g library, museum,park
I - Star Wars or Birds of the feathered variety particularly Swans.

Across the next two terms we have fitted in all of that, except the calendar, but that request was from a younger Brownie and we can do that in the autumn term. We have no new girls this January and just three at Easter so if we recheck at the end of summer term, everyone will be having a say.

Actually, we haven't specifically planned cooking either though there will inevitably be some. Our new venue doesn't yet have a cooker so we need to play it by ear a little until then.

So, we're pretty much ready for 2016, just need to print off a few things like sign in lists and so on and we're good to go!
