What is an apple basic

Sometime people are so familiar with things that they do not know one is the other.  That is a chicken lays an egg, which a shop then sells. That egg white comes from the inside of the egg!  Or in this case an apple may be made into apple juice and apple pulp then used in two different recipes.

So the Guides were shown that if they peel several apples, core them, chop them up into pieces (sizes as evenly as possible) then cook these pieces aver a heat sauce with a little water you actually end up with a mixture from which the stained juice is apple juice and the remaining stuff in the strainer is the apple puree.

Cool and use as soon as possible.

But what do you use it for. So over time they have been shown the following: Apple juice, Apple Puree, Salad dressing, Apple pancakes.

Salad dressing

2 cloves garlic crushed

1 tsp whole grain mustard

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp vinegar ( was recomeneded to have balasamic vinegar but we used what was on hand.)

1 tsp box honey (some one was allegic to honey so out came the brown sugar)

60 ml unsweetened apple juice.

1 tsbp extra virgin oil

Everything went into a whisk and was combined.  Mix was chilled and used on salads.  Makes only about 100mls per mix.  Therefore is an easy recipe for the Guides to learn and pass on.  A great way of using several steps to complete a multi level learning task.

Management of flexible age range meeting times.

Yes, there are extraneous needs of the Girl Guides attending the weekly Unit meetings that are pushing the Hazelwood and Churchill Girl Guide District to open a second meeting time.

The biggest thing holding this back is the lack of people screaming to be leaders!  For a female over 18 years old to become a leader they must have a police Check initiated by Guide Center and a Working with Children Check [WWC]  other issues are lack of’s [money, time, commitment, weekends, transport….]

Then where are the girls who want to be Guides.  Sometimes having one meeting time does not fit into their time table.

The second meeting time would be on a Wednesday and begin at 7pm and will be for the current 11 to 15 year age range.

Activities using playdough

Just making the playdough in it self is a very creative activity for the Guides of all ages.

Guides and adults have used it when organising activities.
Junior Leaders sometimes use it as a teaching aid (part of their Leadership three).

The more we get together

The more we get together is a song that was sung in 2005 at a camp fire. very soon after wards as part of the Achieve : Leadership part 2 this song was one of a few taught over a a month at Guides in preparation for a short campfire.

The more we get together, together, together,
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.
For your friends are my friends,
And my friends are your friends,
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.

The more we get together, together, together,
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.
For you know that I know,
And I know that you know,
The more we get together the happier we’ll be.
