Good Turn Mouse
This saucy creature is a mouse
Most mothers won't let one in the house
See, this one it has quite a tail,
Each Girl Scout made one without fail.
Take it with you and help all week,
and to do good turns you must seek
for every good turn that you do
tie a knot in the yarn...make quite a few.
Remember why each knot you tied
and how much to help you really tried
and then next time, please take your turn
to tell us all, so we can learn...
just what you did to help at home
a ready helper you have grown!

Craft time
·      Craft helper pass out craft bags-- they make mice with tails.
Snack Time: we make the Trail Mix and enjoy it. The story is next week!
Circle time
