Here's a time filler game that can be creative and fun!
Follow the Rules:
All players sit in a circle. One person selected to be It
stands away from the group. The players remaining in the circle choose a rule
to use while answering questions. The rule can be hard or simple depending on
those playing. For example: Answer questions as if you were an alien, or,
players must scratch their heads or yawn before answering. When the person who
is It comes back, she must find out the rule by asking players questions about
themselves. The person trying to guess the rule is allowed to take as long as
she needs. If it takes too long, players can help by exaggerating the response
the rule calls for. (The Incredible Indoor Games Book, pg. 52).
Tune in next week for a craft idea that will excite your crowds!

Well we have reached another milestone. We have over 100 new volunteers for Region 3! Let’s do a quick review of who needs to complete the application process!
So we know all Adult Girl Scout volunteers are to be registered and receive an appointment letter prior to working with the girls.
We know any Adult Girl Scout volunteers who handle the girl finances or product sales must be registered and receive an appointment letter.
Are there any exceptions? Yes
1) A presenter who will never be alone with the girls. No additional paperwork required.
2) An Episodic volunteer – someone who will volunteer only once
a. Authorizes the background check
b. Completes the application
c. Encouraged to register as Girl Scout
d. Complete a position description
e. Must receive an appointment letter or approval prior to meeting with the girls.
3) A parent who may sit in the back of the room during a meeting because it’s just to far to travel.
a. I would always encourage theses parents to register and go through the appointment process but if they are not willing-we can let it go.
With all that being said I hope that you all join us at the Region 3 Cookie Rally! We rock!
Yes, you guessed it …I’m looking for volunteers!

Give each girl a peice of paper, a writing utensil, and something hard on which to write (nothing that you would mind if it was accidentally written on--perhaps a stack of newspapers or a paper plate). Instruct girls to place the paper on the hard surface, and the hard surface onto their heads. Either show the girls a picture that you want them to recreate, or verbally give them the name of an object to draw. They will draw on the paper that is on top of their heads. When finished, get ready for the laughter as the pictures are sure to be interesting.
Have you used any of the games, songs and activities you've learned from the Songs & Games Training, S'more Fun Training, or a regional or Service Unit Meeting? How did it go? Did your girls find a new favorite or did you find a flop? Share your stories so that others can learn what's working with girls today.

Greetings fine Leaders of Region 3,
You've been asking for it, and I am here to deliver--Tuesday Program Tips. Tune in each week to learn a new program tip or trick--including songs, games, crowd pleasers, and behavior management tools. I encourage you to post the outcome of using these tips (example: "I played "Bite the Bag" with troop #0150, and they loved it! Here's a picture of one of our craziest moments!" or "I cooked the "Pumpkin Chili" reciepe with the girls in SU 007 at our Fall Festival, and we decided the reciepe gets better if you add a tsp of paprika."). If you've got something to share, we'd love to see it. Feel free to post it here or e-mail it to me, Jessica, mailto:email@example.com.
· Be sure the games are appropriate for the age, experience and physical condition of the girls.
· Begin with familiar games that are quickly learned, and then move on to more complex games.
Games for Large Groups: Alphabetical Circle
Everybody stands in a circle, go around the circle and say your name. Go around twice: clockwise and counter-clockwise. Now circle up alphabetically by first initial of first name without talking. (Youth Leadership in Action. Pg. 126-127)
Tune in next time for more information on selecting games, and the instructions to "Noodle Doodles"--a creative time filler activity.
