Our Hawaiian Thinking Day Sleep over
Our Community recently had almost 45 kids and adults attend
a Thinking Day Sleep over with an Hawaiian theme.
After they registered, the girls were given a lei and a flower made
from crepe paper for their hair.
Crafts for the evening were:
We also had coconut bowling. Real coconuts were used to knock down the
"pineapples" made by the Pathfinders. To make the "pineapples", the Pathfinders
put a little water in plastic pop bottles, and placed them in decorated
brown bags. They then made leaves to tape to the outside at the top. Once
we had finished using the coconuts for bowling, we peeled them and used
them for mug up. Our QM couldn't get over how easy the coconut was to peel!
A mural to give to the school, as a thank you for letting us use the school
for the sleep over.
Grass skirts made from garbage bags (each girl was asked to bring one garbage
Shrink art - they colored a picture of a parrot.
Fun foam magnets. We cut fun foam into fish shapes and glued on a large
sea shell. The finishing touches were a googly eye glued onto the shell,
some sparkles glued to the fun foam, and a magnet glued to the back.
Sand art table. We used colored sugar, and put it in baby food jars with
small sea shells glued to the top of the lid.
(Editor's note: "Mug up" is a phrase used in Canada that refers to a
hot drink and snack before bed.)
We also had a fish pond. We had had a variety of shell-themed jewelry
donated to our unit (rings, necklaces, bracelets, head bands and clip-on
earrings), so we cut fish shapes out of construction paper and stapled
them together using the jewelry as decorations. I hear that some of the
Sparks are still wearing their treasures to school a week later!!
Food for the sleep over consisted of:
among other things.
Ship Kabobs (an idea from the Canadian Guider magazine)
Mermaid Delight and Pearls (pasta shells with a cheese sauce and peas)
Ship Mates (carrot and celery Sticks)
Everyone also brought in their Thinking Day Banks, and the top 6 girls
were rewarded with a crest from Hawaii that we had traded for through the
Guider, British Columbia, Canada.
Do you have any other ideas for activities?
