LAMPMAN - March 5 proved to be a great day for the Lampman and Stoughton Girl Guides as they spent the afternoon in the snow.
Danielle Fleury, a Lampman Guide leader, offered her farm for approximately 20 girls to have some fun. Four leaders each took a group of girls through all the events.
This began around 1 p.m. when the group all went tobogganing.
They also painted in the snow with food colouring, leaving a trail of colour for others to follow.
Another fun game was the push sled. It is similar to a dog’s bobsled, where one can sit, and another stands behind and pushes with their feet.
All the kids and leaders enjoyed snowshoeing. The kids found this harder than anticipated when the shoes wanted to cross over instead of going straight.
Inside the Quonset, crafts were set up, one of a snowman and another a snowflake. These were taken home by the girls.
The crafts continued with the making of a skate and a poker stick that housed a bead to represent a marshmallow.
When the afternoon of fun was coming to an end, a bonfire was started to warm everyone’s toes. S’mores were made with cookies and hot chocolate to warm the bellies.
The party ended with each club singing a campfire song.
According to Stoughton leader Krystle Zoer, everyone had a blast with lots of giggles and laughs.
Before the Stoughton group went home, Fleury took the girls through her museum on her farm.
The next event to be held in Stoughton by the club is their trefoil tea and bake sale at the Apostolic Church on April 1. Everyone is invited to this event to enjoy baking and Girl Guide cookies, and have the chance to purchase some of the treats.
