    It is posted on the Frontier Girls website under the Our Program tab. On Quest it is under the About Us tab. I always post links on the Facebook group when I post them and email them as well.
  3. I didn't think about adding that, But that would be good to add. Is there anyway to edit a post?

    Where will the frontier girls newsletter be?
  6. We usually try to make Fridays a lighter or more fun day, so we often do something towards a badge then. We were doing some science stuff using our microscope last week and used that to start on the microscope badge. I've been homeschooling for years and rarely find a science program we like, so I think we might use many of the science related badges as unit studies next year. I think we can have lots of fun studying a variety of things and earning badges before we get to the harder high school level sciences in a few years.

    Craft ideas

    Ornaments, bookmarks, magnets, pencil toppers, friendship bracelets, note card sets, or scrabble letter magnets that say cute things. You can also have a do it yourself craft booth where you simply offer the supplies and customers get to make their own small craft for a nominal fee.

    Resources

    Everything on Curiosity Untamed is free of charge. Badge requirements and membership only resources will still be on the Frontier Girls and Quest websites. The main websites are just becoming too full and so finding resources is difficult. I plan to get the main websites down to just the actual programming, forms, badge tracking software etc. and move all crafts, games, ceremonies, songs, meeting plans, etc. to Curiosity Untamed where I can more easily categorize them. The 'How To" stuff to actually participate will still be on the main websites, but all the extra ideas will be on Curiosity Untamed. For example the entire list of badge requirements for the Bubbles badge will be on the main website, but Curiosity Untamed may have various bubble crafts, science projects or field trip ideas posted to help you earn the badge.

    How to get girls involved in fundraising

    Troops/Clubs may use their money in any way they wish (as long as their charter organization agrees if they have one.) Frontier Girls LLC stays out of troop/club fundraising. Personally I prefer keeping books regarding who helped (and to what extent) at each fundraiser and allocating a percentage of funds to those kids which can then be used for events, extra badges or awards, their registration, uniform, etc. If a parent won't let their child participate in fundraising it just means they will need to pay more out of pocket. If they can't participate due to schedule conflicts, etc. the parent is welcome to work with the leader to coordinate another fundraiser that their child can attend to earn more funds, but the parent would need to organize and coordinate it. Leaders cannot be expected to cater to every child's schedule, especially when you have a troop that is 20-50 strong.
  10. What about homeschoolers like me that both base lessons on badges as well as find badges that fit my lessons?

    Make a Difference Award

    It really depends on what your project is. Once you decide on a project, you will need a timeline of when things need to be accomplished. You will need to figure out what supplies you need and where you plan to get them. Do you need to raise funds? Who can you get to help you organize and complete the project? If this is an ongoing project that will need volunteers after you are finished, who will be taking over management of the project? If you can provide a bit more information, I could be a bit more specific.

    Make a Difference Award

    Does anyone have a good way to do a Make a Difference Award? I have an idea, but I need almost a rubric for it. I need to know how to prepare. Thanks!
  14. Do you think the there could be an added "Awards" section? I have questions about them, and there's no place to put them. Thanks!

    How to get girls involved in fundraising

    That is too bad. I don't see anything you could do about that though.
