·         Baby Formula & Baby Wipes & Diapers

·         Blankets


They will not accept homemade food or used items for health, safety, and cultural reasons. Please respect this request.

 Please drop off all items to my house between January 9-23rd. We would like to drop off all items to the Navajo Nation by January 24th.   Address for drop of in email.

Flat Juliette set to Explore Pima!

The Flat Juliette Program is a pen pal-type activity that promotes international literacy and friendship. It is based on the Flat Stanley/Stacie projects, started by a school teacher. 

Juliette usually travels far and wide but is interested in staying closer to home during the pandemic. She wants to spend time with her friends in Pima and see what they are up to during these trying times.

You can download a packet here. These packets include: 

  • Several choices for making your flat Juliette.
  • A sample journal page that you can send out with your flat Juliette.
  • Information on Juliette Low.
There is a complete pdf journal you can use to send along with Juliette here. Written with new Daisies in mind.

Your girls can send your troop flat Juliette back and forth and can ask other troops if they have Girl Scouts who would like to host her.  Girls then mail back Juliette with pictures and notes about what they did. 

Another option is to have each girl in the troop create her own Flat Juliette.

Flat Juliette would like to attend the following activities:

  • Jingle Bell Hike
  • Great Pima Scavenger Hunt
  • Cookie Rally
  • Cookie Delivery
  • Thinking Day
  • Troop Zoom Meetings

Add to the fun by getting a map to mark the places she’s been in and around Pima.  Your girls might also like to create a scrapbook with the pictures and notes they get back.

Notes for Flat Juliette Activity: 

 1) Cut her out of cardstock or poster board. You can even laminate her to keep her neat and make a stand to help photograph her. Unless you plan on using tape to hold them on, remember to add tabs to her outfits and accessories. 

2) Send a cover letter with her in the mail describing your project. Include a return address label to facilitate her return to your proper address if you are not doing door-to-door delivery. 

3) Keep a notebook/binder of what is returned to you. (journal pages, photos, souvenirs, etc.), along with a map showing where she’s been. 

4) Here are some ideas for outfits and accessories that you could make for Juliette: doctor with scalpel, firefighter with axe, tennis player with racket, artist with paintbrush, cowgirl with lasso, sailor with life preserver, construction worker with hammer, safari outfit with butterfly net, chef with whisk, baseball player with mitt or bat, zookeeper with animal, pirate with sword, karate uniform, Halloween costume, scuba gear, Greek/Roman toga, international outfits, etc.
