LastMinuteLucie and the search for time

matchbooked resolutions

Who says resolutions can only be made in January?

At the beginning of term I ask my Guides to write down the things they would like to achieve or try during the year. They hum and haw a bit and sometimes huff, but they all manage to think of something- often along the lines of not arguing with siblings or keeping up to date with homework, but sometimes they surprise you with ‘go paragliding’ or ‘learn to ride a horse’.

Usually we do this in letter form, but this time I decided to make more of the opportunity to do something creative, so we made matchbooks.

I’d seen this as a scrapbooking technique some time ago and I used this tutorial to help me remember how http://scrapbooking.about.com/library/weekly/aa110905a.htm

As you can see, it was a success.

And writing their resolutions warmed the little grey cells enough that the girls made some great suggestions for activities for the coming terms. Result!
