Becoming a Brownie

Becoming a Brownie

Two months ago Moozles turned seven, and with that she was able to join Brownies. She had been in Rainbows for a year beforehand, so was not new to Girlguiding. But Brownies has felt like such a big step up. Plus she moved troupe and to a new Brown Owl (that’s what they call the leader).

Moozles does not enjoy trying new things. She gets a bit anxious and nervous. I practically had to force her to attend Brownies. And although she enjoyed Rainbows, she was always trying to get out of attending the weekly sessions. I have previously written about how Moozles tends to quit activities, but I would like her to continue with Girlguiding for a bit longer. Girls learn about the wider world in Brownies, as well as joining in to help their community. These are important lessons for all young people. Moozles has really started to love Brownies, and I hope this continues. Girlguiding is a place for girls to make friendships, build confidence and gain skills they will have for life.

  1. Congratulations Moozles!

    Our Isaac is similar. He can be reluctant to try new things outside of his comfort zone, so enlisting him in Beavers has been so beneficial for helping to round out his development. He’s due to move up to Cubs soon, so hopefully he will continue to enjoy and learn more about his world through that.

  2. Well done Moozles! My son is in beavers (snigger!) and he’s just been on camp, and he loved it! I feel like they get to be kids at beavers, and really learn lots about outdoor life and play.

  3. Aw so cute and congrats to her on becoming a Brownie. Funnily enough I was talking about Brownies last night when I was out for dinner with friends- it’s something I would really like my girls to do as I loved it when I was a child! x

  4. She looks so cute and I hope that she sticks with it and has a lot of fun at Brownies! I went to Guides and loved it, you learn so much and have so many great experiences through Girlguiding. xx

  5. Mine all did Brownies, Guides, Cubs etc. I agree, I think we need to encourage these wholesome activities. She looks pretty proud of herself there! x

  6. How exciting! I cant wait for my kids to get into scouting / guides (rainbows etc) I think its such a lovely thing for them to do.

    I really hope she sticks at it and gets a lot from it, your right, they learn such valuable lessons and awareness through it. x

  7. My little one is in Rainbows and loves it, she has just over a year before she can become a Brownie but I hope she carries on, it really seems to help her confidence.
