Co-Activity Leader, who is a leader in the other Guide unit in my district and ran the activities on last summer’s camp with me, is wonderful for many reasons. One is her ability to produce themed props and decorations at short notice. I said “Please could you bring some fairytale decorations?”, and this happened:
Check out that mirror! That rose! Those goblets, that beanstalk! (I made the toadstools and another leader supplied the pumpkins.) And I didn’t even get a photo of the bunting, or the magic cauldron, or Dick Whittington’s bundle on a stick, or the chintzy door hanging, or the wall of fairy lights. As far as the candlesticks and fairy lights go, Co-Activity Leader proved that if you’re having a wedding, you should always buy decorations that can be re-used at guiding events.
