Some things I write on this blog for others, and some for me to look back upon, and this is one of the latter.
Last week Bean came back from Rainbows with her first badge!! She was absolutely delighted and I was really pleased as I was helping out that night so I saw her face when she received it.
It is a “Look, Learn, Laugh, Love” badge, and they certainly did all four of those in the session I was helping with.
It is sad to see many Rainbows, Brownies and Guides units close in recent years. Bean has only just started going but she gets so much out of it – socialising with peers, both from her school and from other schools, crafts, cooking, playing games and generally having fun. Exactly what 5-7 year olds should be doing, and all for the bargainous price of £1.50.
Here is Bean with her first badge…now I’ve got to get sewing!!
