Sharing the Candy
This fun activity will teach girls about being honest and fair, which is a key part of the Girl Scout Law.
Instructions: You will give each girl a clear cup and write their name on the outside. Then, without explaining anything, start handing out candy, and counting out loud. Give the first girl 5 pieces, give the second girl 4 pieces, and the third girl only 2 pieces. As most kids do, the girls will start to complain and probably tell you “This isn’t fair” or “Why did she get 5 and I only got 2?”
After you have handed out candy to every girl, it’s time to ask the girls “How we can make this more fair? How do we make it so each girl gets the same amount of candy and it is divided more fairly?” Then, give the girls time to figure out how to equally divide the candy. This will teach your girls the importance of sharing and being fair to everyone.
