Girl Scouts

Girl Scout Glossary:

Girl Scout sign: Hold the middle three fingers up by putting your pinky and your thumb together.

Girl Scout handshake: Shake hands with your left hand while making the Girl Scout sign with your right hand.

Friendship circle: This stands for an unbroken chain of friendship with Girl Scouts and Girl Guides all around the world. Everyone stands in a circle and places their right arm over her left and holds hands. Everyone makes a silent wish as a friendship squeeze is passed from hand to hand.

Friendship squeeze: After someone shares something in the circle, she squeezes the hand of the person standing next to her, who shares something and the squeeze passes on around the circle.

Quiet sign: Hold up your right hand. As people in the group see the quiet sign, they stop talking and also raise their hands. Once everyone is silent, the meeting continues.

Girl Scout motto: “Be prepared!”

Girl Scout slogan: “Do a good turn daily!”
