There are 100 candles spread over 8 pages in this printable! Print them onto good paper or card and cut them out for the kids to colour in. Perhaps you could make a giant cake display from construction paper and each child could stick their candle(s) on?
World Thinking Day
World Thinking Day is celebrated by Girl Guides and Girl Scouts all over the world on 22nd February each year.
Its aim is to bring together children from all over the world (nearly 150 countries take part) to celebrate international friendships, raise money and think about a global theme, which is changed each year.
Boy Scouts also mark 22nd February but call it Founders Day.
The theme for Thinking Day in 2019 is "Leadership" - celebrating how guides and girl scouts are leaders, with the power to bring about change.
“Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. ”
We have many activities and resources here at Activity Village that may help you celebrate World Thinking Day, including some specially themed "leadership" activities that you will find below..
This year you may find our new Making A Difference topic useful!
