It’s a Winter Wonderland this December with Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana (GSGCNWI), and you’re invited! We might all be staying at home, but that’s no reason we can’t have a good time together. Whether it’s celebrating Holidays Around the World, learning about the universe at our Space Science webinars, or participating in some special surprises throughout the month, we’re sure to have a wonderful winter together!
Virtual Programs for All Ages (K-12)
- Take it outside on Dec. 1 to identify different types of snowflakes and then defy the laws of science by building a snowman indoors!
- Explore the architecture of making Gingerbread Houses on Dec. 4! Designing, cutting, and decorating will all be part of this family activity!

Winter Holidays Around the World
How do girls in other countries celebrate the winter holidays? Join us on Dec. 12 for an afternoon FULL of virtual holiday cheer to learn! We’ll make crafts from holiday celebrations and send recipe suggestions for delicious cultural treats.
Girl Scouts of all levels, and their family members, are welcome to cozy up around the fire (and computer!) with hot chocolate in hand to experience winter holidays around the world.
