Toad House hosts Girl Scouts from Phillips and Park Falls

Cathy Pritzl, Girl Scout leader extraordinaire from the Park Falls, Phillips area, brought 26 girls and eleven leaders to Toad House on November 3rd.  We had a wonderful time getting to know our neighbors to the east. The young ladies were so very well mannered and eager to do the three activities we had set up for them. We hope they had as much fun as we did.  Here are some of the photos from our afternoon with the Girl Scouts.

These three pictures are from the watercolor activity.  The girls used a variety of techniques to create beautiful designs that they took home and made into greeting cards.
This photograph is from a project using natural materials gathered from the lawn at toad house and some brightly colored tissue. The end result -- sun catchers for a window.

Janelle Thompson taught the girlscouts to sketch simple objects found in nature by looking closely at the shape within the objects.  Everyone drew a very believable toad.
