    I have 2 Girl Scouts, ages 6 and 8, who are excited about our upcoming trip and also eager to earn some patches. Any ideas or suggestions on "Try Its" (or patches) they can earn?

    Hi Jennifer --

    Kudos to your girls for their eagerness to earn Girl Scout patches on vacation.  I have a feeling that when they get home and look through the requirements for "Try Its" they will see that they've completed a lot of activities.  If you want to plan ahead, here are a few suggestions that I can think of:

    • People Are Talking #5 - The World Showcase at EPCOT is full of native speakers from many different countries.  They would be delighted to share some phrases with your girls.
    • Point Click and Go #5 & #6 - Future World in EPCOT has a few attractions (Spaceship Earth, Journey Into Imagination) where you can sent email messages/postcards to friends around the world.
    • Travel Right - your girls can earn the entire patch by helping to pack and keeping a journal of their adventure.
    • Penny Power #6 - give your girls a budget to spend and let them keep track of their money throughout the week.
    • Eco-Explorer #1 & #5 - There are many attractions at Animal Kingdom that will help them pass off these requirements.
    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation, and good luck earning those patches!
