Pass the Mirror
Ages preschooler

Girl Scout troop leaders are experts at entertaining packs of kids. We reached out to Girl Scout volunteers across the nation, asking for their best group activities. A flood of inspiring stories and ingenious ideas came in from hundreds of troops. Here's one of our favorites.

TROOP: Daisy Troop 1486
HOMETOWN: Maricopa, Arizona
LEADERS: Carrie Bentley and Jenny Blackford

What They Did: The girls sat in a circle and played the deceptively simple game of Pass the Mirror.

Why They Love This Idea: The game paves the way for future kindnesses. "From then on," says Carrie, "I noticed them complimenting each other more, saying things like, 'You played that game really well,' and my favorite, 'You're a great friend to me.'"

What you'll need

  • Handheld mirror

How to play

  1. Have your group of kids sit in a circle and pass around a small handheld mirror. Each person takes a turn saying one nice thing about herself on the outside ("I have pretty freckles") and one nice thing about herself on the inside ("I am a good friend").
