A lot of these Brownies had been in the Pack since Thinking Day the previous year, so had already heard my "talk" about what Thinking Day is, how there are Brownies in lots of countries around the world, looked at posters of uniforms, and so on. But by doing this painting, they seemed to suddenly realize that there were not just Brownies in England, and that they also wear different uniforms. Suddenly they were interested and asking me questions, instead of the other way around! It worked !! :-) But they weren't 'alf messy with the paint ...
