This “paper doll” investiture ceremony is perfect for Brownie Girl Scouts.
As each girl says her verse, she stretches out her hand to the next girl to speak, until all the girls are standing across like paper dolls. Verses may be split according to the number of girls participating.
Take my hand in friendship, I give to you this day
Let’s look forward to the good times, we will have along the way
Take my hand in helping, other people that we know
The more we give to others, the more that we will grow
Take my hand in learning, to camp on nature’s ground
Enjoying trails and campfires, with new friends that we’ve found
Take my hand in giving, our knowledge of true scouts
To girls we meet and talk to, who have so many doubts
Take my hand in thanking, our leader and our guide
With sincere appreciation, for standing by our side
Take my hand in eagerness, to be a Brownie Girl Scout
We’re proud of who we are, is what we’re going to shout
(TOGETHER): We give our hands in Promise, to hold our country dear And abide the Girl Scout Law, each day throughout the year
All girl say the Girl Scout Promise and receive their Girl Scout pins.
