THE SMALLEST LIGHT
Supplies: 1. a candle for each
member 4. matches
2. three tall candles 5.
3. 10 small candles
LEADER: All around us is darkness. I light this
candle to represent the flame of sisterhood that burns
in the heart of every Girl Scout and it is no longer
dark. Although this is a tiny flame and it lights only a
small area, all of us can see it. Each one of us knows
it is here and could find the way to it. Though tiny, it
is a beacon to every one of us. This tiny light can
grow, be multiplied and spread if someone would come to
join it. (Two girls light their candles from the
#1 GS: Now the flame is brighter, lights a
bigger area and we can see more than before. But this is
only a beginning, for once there is light and people who
are willing to share it, it will grow. As it is shared,
it will become bigger and bigger until all who want it
can have the light. (Girls light candles from each other
until all are lighted)
#2 GS: See how fast the light can spread.
Notice how well you can see now. This light makes it
possible for us to see our friends, see their smiles and
their actions. Other people can see our light.
#3 GS: As this light brightens our group, so
does our light as true Girl Scouts brighten our own
lives and the lives of others. The smallest light held
by the least of us is important to the whole world.
#4 GS: Now I will light the three candles for
the three parts of our Promise with the same tiny light
from which so much light has grown. Watch the candles
take up the flame to shine on all of us as we rededicate
ourselves by saying the Girl Scout Promise. (All members
