I wanted to put some resources down that my girls have found helpful when homeschooling and Girl Scouting. Because we homeschool we can do way more than cookies J -- but we do a lot of cookies….
First, they love to earn badges with and without their troops. We have always kept a journal or filled out badge completion forms. Those that we finish outside of troop – we purchase ourselves.
Once a badge always a badge – we enjoy finding old badges to work on – we use those requirements. I find them on Girl Scout Badge Swap on facebook - https://www.facebook.com/groups/342045629205295/ or Ebay.
We take advantage of as many programs as possible – go to the council site – www.gsctx.org click on calendar. You can go as a family. You do not have to go as a troop.
As homeschoolers – we get to do things other Girl Scouts don’t get to do - -such as Color Guard at various community events, try new programs for council and be part of media opportunities.
