A Halloween on Zoom

22nd Rochdale rainbows & 43rd Rochdale brownies had a fab Halloween themed zoom session. It was fab that everyone dressed up for the call and still told Halloween jokes.

43rd Rochdale Brownies completed their space badge via zoom with having a planet themed night. The girls made their own Mars rover, designed their own planet, and a galaxy in a jar. They also welcomed the 22nd Rochdale rainbows to their session . It was a very noisy session, just like being in person.

22nd Rochdale rainbows had fun doing the mascot maker UMA activity on zoom tonight.

Mental note: don’t put superglue on the sock and top it wool, the next minute it’s smoking and one rainbow leader with a hot hand.

Embracing the new term via zoom. 22nd Rochdale Rainbows had fun on our first real zoom session – rainbow scavenger hunt & microwave cake. Great way to introduce the girls to our virtual meeting.

Oldham Brownies help save the zoo!

When we were just coming out of Lockdown, Chester Zoo had an appeal to raise money and save the zoo.

Our 43rd A & 49th Oldham Brownies came together (virtually) to hold a fun filled Disney themed quiz.  Thanks to all the parents donations we managed to raise a fantastic £150.00.  Which we used to adopt 3 animals at the zoo.  Each leader choose their favourite animal and then the Brownies and their parents voted for their favourite.  The top 3 were adopted. Our units names are displayed on a plaque by each of the animals. 

Hopefully, when these lockdown restrictions ease we will be able to visit the Zoo and see our plaques.

Brownies bring Disney to Zoom

43rd Rochdale brownies had a fab Disney themed zoom meeting. The girls and leaders showed off some Disney items they have (lots of Minnie mouses), made Mr Potato Head in a time challenge, had a quiz (i learned how to share screen) and made a bug hotel (UMA, bottle mansions). Think my potato head looks like Forky the potato head.
