Dragonfly Friends is a great craft to start the new year off right, especially if you’re adding new girls to your troop. You can have each girl make a dragonfly friend and then swap them randomly, and those two girls will be buddies for the next field trip or outing.

This Clothespin Reindeer is a great easy craft for younger girls. I used to make these with my grandmother too, so it’s a great family craft.
