We did Greece for Thinking Day last year and made a poster board size flag of Greece. We then cut it into puzzle pieces. This way the younger girls had a puzzle to put together and it helped them remember the flag better. We only cut it into about 12-14 pieces so as to not make it too hard for them. We used masking tape to mark the straight lines of the flag (worked like a charm), and then painted with foam brush and stencil paint (much easier than using markers, and dries very quickly). If you make a mistake you can always use White Out. The girls really enjoyed making the flag and puzzle.

In groups, put together jigsaws of names and pictures of Brownies (or whatever age level is appropriate) in other countries. Use a postcard or picture for the back, so that if they get stuck, they can turn the jigsaw over, go by the picture, and turn back.
