Well here we are at our celebration day! Thank you all for being with us over the last 8 days making memories with #GuidingGwentVEDay
Today there is a mix of scheduled things you can do if you wish with the national celebrations organised by the Royal British Legion, and our own campfire sing a long at 8pm.
⭐️At 3pm Raise a glass
Nations Toast to the Heroes of WW2 and everyone should say “To those who gave so much, we thank you”
The activities on our activities list can then be slotted into your day when you are able!
🇬🇧 Make your own commemorative mugs and plates using paper and craft material
🇬🇧 Make toilet roll shakers. (At 7pm bells were supposed to be rung out over the nation but this has not been possible – therefore at 7pm shake your shakers or use bicycle bells, jingle bells or anything you can find to ring for victory!) Here is a nice link https://www.thecrafttrain.com/cardboard-tube-shakers/
🇬🇧Watch our fire safety video and have a go at making your own fire with craft materials you have at home.
🇬🇧 Guiding members learnt semaphore and morse code so they could help pass on messages.
⭐️Make some semaphore flags out of two pieces of paper taped to wooden spoons and draw a line diagonally on it and colour one side red and one side yellow and have a go making the letters.
⭐️ Practice Morse Code and wait for our secret message later today to decipher!
Look our for our posts later on today and keep us posted with the fun you are having x
