The Girl Scouts of the United States of America (GSUSA) is an organization that promotes girls’ leadership, development, and empowerment. Founded in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low, it is the largest organization for girls in the world, with over 2.5 million members in the United States alone. Since its origin, GSUSA has provided activities and programs intended to help young girls build meaningful relationships, become self-reliant, develop a sense of community, and take part in activities such as camping, travel, volunteer service, and career exploration.
In honor of Juliette Low’s dedication to the organization she founded, GSUSA celebrates her birthday every October 31. To celebrate, the organization suggests a variety of activities and events for troops, councils, and families. One of the activities includes these printable Juliette Low Activity Sheets, which can be found and downloaded for free from the GSUSA website, as well as from various other sites such as Pinterest and Troop Leader Hub.
These activity sheets include fun, engaging activities such as word searches and crossword puzzles related to Juliette Gordon Low’s life and her contributions to the Girl Scouts. They are intended to provide an opportunity for both individual and group learning, as well as to foster conversation about the organization’s founder and her legacy. The puzzles can be printed off and used as part of a larger activity or celebration, or can be solved in small groups or solo.
In addition to the activity sheets, GSUSA also has several other recommendations for activities to celebrate Juliette Low’s birthday. Some of these activities include organizing a discussion or forum about her life and accomplishments, building a Juliette Low “Legacy Tree” with facts about the organization’s origins and history, and writing an original poem or song about the Girl Scouts’ founder. For more information on how to celebrate Juliette Low’s birthday, please visit the GSUSA website.
At GSUSA, we recognize the important role that Juliette Low played in creating the Girl Scouts of the United States of America. Her dedication to the organization and her commitment to promoting leadership and empowerment for girls of all ages continues to inspire and motivate us today. We hope these activities will help to ensure that her legacy lives on in a lasting and meaningful way.
