Friendship is Trust
 


This ceremony could be used anytime it would be appropriate to reinforce the concept of Girl Scout sisterhood. It could also be done for adults as part of a welcoming ceremony.

Supplies: I. each girl traces her hand on paper and cuts it out

2. tape

3. large poster paper

Procedure:

As each girl comes forward, she reads her part off the back of the hand then tapes it to the poster paper to eventually form a circle. Note: you can double up on parts or write more to suit the size of the group.
