Easy Braided Bracelet

Easy Braided Bracelet

Easy Braided Bracelets and Friendship bracelets in general are one of the most classic crafts done at camps world-wide, and one of my favorites.  There are a few basic types of friendship bracelets, but this is the easiest.  It may not be challenging enough for older girls, but it’s perfect for younger girls making their first friendship bracelet.

We Change the World

We Change the World

When I learned this song, there was actually American Sign Language that went with it. If you have a copy of the signs that goes along with this song, please share!

Change the world, come with me
Time to let our dreams fly free.
And it comes so easily, that is our way.
Every moment we’re alive, it’s our love that will survive,
In the Girl Scouts, together, We Change The World.

Sisters of every color, and friends from everywhere.
We all make the difference, when we show the world we care.
The Girl Scouts are our family,
And they show us what we can be
And I believe, together, We Change The World.

Change the world, come with me
Time to let our dreams fly free.
And it comes so easily, that is our way.
Every moment we’re alive, it’s our love that will survive,
In the Girl Scouts, together, We Change The World.

In a world with many faces, Girl Scouts find a way
To help in many places, along the trails we blaze.
We’ll light the light and do our share,
Reach out your hand and someone’s there,
And I believe, together, We Change The World.

Change the world, come with me
Time to let our dreams fly free.
And it comes so easily, that is our way.
Every moment we’re alive, it’s our love that will survive,
In the Girl Scouts, together, We Change The World.
