Congrats Team #Heartbreaker: We completed Girlguiding Moulsham District's Pumpkin Spotting Challenge
Hey #Heartbreakers! Hope you're having an amazing October! It's officially Spooky Season complete with pumpkin spiced everything, lots of orange and black, and candy. Lots of candy.
Last year I had the amazing chance to host Team #Heartbreaker's participation in Girlguiding Moulsham District's Pumpkin Spotting Challenge! Team #Heartbreaker is my virtual club of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides living in the US and around the world. I love Team #Heartbreaker because we can participate virtually in opportunities like Girl Scout QuestFest, WAGGG's STEM Consultation for Girls and Young Women, and the Pumpkin Spotting Challenge to earn patches and create unforgettable memories together!
For the 2022 Pumpkin Spotting Challenge, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides from across the US, Canada, England, and the Philippines joined me to complete 10 challenges and count how many pumpkins they spot throughout the month of October. We crowned 20 Champion Pumpkin Spotters and added this International Patch to our growing collections!
Literally the cutest patch I own!!!
Aurora joined Team #Heartbreaker from Michigan! We loved the photos her Mom snapped of her joining our Team #Heartbreaker Zoom meetings!
I'm always so proud of Team #Heartbreaker and the amount of dedication, creativity, and hard work they bring to every challenge, project, and meeting. I am always inspired by their amazing energy and confidence!
I'm so excited for you to check out our Pumpkin Spotting Challenge adventures and meet some of my AMAZING Team #Heartbreaker members below!!
Challenge Completed: Pumpkin Volcano!
Plus, check out Tessa's Pumpkin Volcano that she created all the way in the Philippines! Incredible work, Tessa!
Challenge Completed: Pumpkin Cupcake/Cookie/Donut Decorating!
I'm 100% for any excuse to eat cupcakes, so we were *not* passing up this challenge! Team #Heartbreaker and I got creative in the kitchen, icing cupcakes, cookies, and donuts. Most of us snapped photos before we ate them. Some of us did not.
My giant cookie (left) was a mix between a pumpkin (obvi) and a Poké Ball. It fit perfectly with our Pumpkin Spotting Challenge - gotta catch 'em all! ;)
(Right) The theme of Angela's cupcake?! "Stay spooky but pretty!"
Challenge Completed: Dress up as your favorite TV Show or Movie Character!
Great minds think alike?! I think so! Leonora joined Team #Heartbreaker from Toronto, Canada and we twinned it up as Boo from Monsters, Inc. Boo is a queen and Monsters, Inc is my absolute fave movie. I actually saw it in theaters 3.5 times (the half is the time we were late, so we had to go see it a third time to make up for it!!!).
"I love Team #Heartbreaker SO much! The girls are so kind & we love to support each other. The Pumpkin Challenge was a lot of fun & I always looked forward doing crafts & keeping track of all the pumpkins I saw!" - Leonora
Leonora is a staple of Team #Heartbreaker and always brings so much fun, excitement, and light to our Team.
Challenge Completed: Pumpkin Origami!
Not gonna lie....this was a toughie and definitely put the word challenge in "Pumpkin Challenge." But we worked together to make it happen! Trying to do origami on Zoom is...difficult, but the pumpkins turned out SO cute!
Marielle from the Philippines worked super hard to create her (beautiful!) origami pumpkin - it looks like it's straight out of a pumpkin patch!
You can make your very own origami pumpkin, too! This would be such a cute decoration for each guest at your Thanksgiving table!
Challenge Completed: Pumpkin Activity Sheets!
Who doesn't love a good word scramble, maze or crossword puzzle? I mean...I am the QUEEN of mazes. They are my secret talent.
Aurora was proud to show off her completed activity sheets! Proud to have you on Team #Heartbreaker!!! Your effort and hard work are top tier!
Challenge Completed: Pumpkin Spotting!
I'm pretty sure I spotted over 400 pumpkins ;)
Congrats to Angela, Katelyn, Chiara, Ishana, Rebekah, Stella, Leonora, Tessa, Olivia P., and Aurora (pictured below!) on completing the Challenge and rocking those amazing Halloween costumes! Can't wait to see what you dress up as this year (and how many pumpkins you spot!).
"Let the love begin in spooky season with Team #Heartbreaker!" - Angela
"Team Heartbreaker has truly been such a fun group of people to get to know and hang out with. One of my favorite Team #Heartbreaker events was the Pumpkin Spotting Challenge because I got to see how other places around the world celebrate one of my favorite holidays. Through talking to other team members, I get to not only make new friends but also learn about Girl Scouting and Girl Guiding around the world." - Katelyn from Pennsylvania, Second Year Senior Girl Scout
And...a HUGE congrats to: Mary Jo, Olivia H., Peyton, Serena, Paige, Scarlett, Riley, and Marielle for completing the Pumpkin Spotting Challenge as part of Team #Heartbreaker! SO proud of each and every one of you!
BONUS: Each member of Team #Heartbreaker who completed the Pumpkin Spotting Challenge received a special surprise from me! Some cute pumpkin goodies to help them celebrate and decorate for Fall!
