Mansfield’s local chapter of the Girl Scouts, Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland, is inviting families to a vibrant Spring Expo, “Spring into Girl Scouts,” which promises an evening filled with fun activities, crafts, and an opportunity to learn more about what it means to be a part of this dynamic organization. The event is scheduled for 6:00 PM on April 18, at Malabar Intermediate School, 205 W. Cook Rd..

Engaging Activities for All Ages

The Expo will be held in the school’s cafeteria, transforming it into a hub of creativity and enjoyment suitable for all ages. Participants will have the chance to engage in a variety of hands-on activities, each designed to foster creativity and build skills:

  • Build and Take Bird Feeders: Using bird seeds and wow butter, attendees can create their own bird feeders, perfect for starting a small wildlife observation at home.
  • Craft Friendship Bracelets: A station for making friendship bracelets allows participants to craft a symbol of connection and camaraderie.
  • Try Soft Archery: For the adventurous spirits, a soft archery setup will provide a safe environment to test and hone archery skills.
  • Pose in the Photo Booth: Equipped with an array of props from quirky to imaginative, the photo booth is ready to capture the fun moments of the night.
  • Create Paperclip Charms: Ideal for readers and journal enthusiasts, this station lets you design custom paperclip charms.
  • Music to Enhance the Atmosphere: Live music will keep the energy upbeat throughout the evening.
  • DIY Pencil Crafts: Younger guests can personalize pencils with creative toppers, making school supplies fun and unique.

Discover the Girl Scouts

Beyond crafts and activities, the Spring Expo serves as a prime opportunity for families to delve into the world of Girl Scouts. The event will include brief sessions where attendees can learn about the various camp and troop opportunities available in their area. It’s a chance to understand how Girl Scouts promotes the development of courage, confidence, and character.

Juliette Gordon Low’s vision, “Truly, ours is a circle of friendships, united by our ideals,” echoes through the event as new and existing members gather to celebrate and share their experiences and aspirations.
