Each year on 22nd February, Girl Guides and Girl Scouts all over the world celebrate World Thinking Day. It is a day to think about the meaning of Guiding and Scouting and about all your fellow Guides and Scouts around the world. Donations are collected for the World Thinking Day Fund which supports projects to help Guides and Scouts around the world. February 22nd was chosen as it is the joint birthday of Scouting Founder Lord Baden-Powell and his wife and World Chief Guide Olave Baden-Powell.
This page is specifically for people from other countries who plan to use Ireland as a theme for World Thinking Day. However, IGG Leaders will also find plenty of fun Irish-themed activities you can do with your Unit.
Every year we get lots of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts world-wide who are looking for ideas on activites, games, crafts, songs, recipes, etc to use with their groups around World Thinking Day. Here we hope to provide plenty of ideas for you to download and print. All documents are in Adobe PDF. You can also read the About IGG section on this website for basic information.
We start off with an overview of the organisation, together with a history of IGG. Then you can click on the individual branches for information on games, songs, crafts and activites. In our Recipes section, there are some Irish recipes and others which are just for fun. Our Templates have pictures of shamrocks, rainbows, etc which you can print to use in your activites or for colouring.
If you would like to buy badges, programme books, uniforms or novelty items then you can visit our Guide Shop online or email our firstname.lastname@example.org and they would be happy to help you.
