Ancaster Brownies in Canada celebrate the Queen's Jubilee with Helene

Look at our beautiful fascinators
Helene had a wonderful time during her second week with the Ancaster Brownies, attending our Queen's Jubilee Tea Party with 54 Canadian Girl Guides including Brownies, Guides, Pathfinders and Rangers. 

While devouring delicious fresh scones made from Queen Elizabeth's favourite recipe, we sipped on a variety of delicious herbal teas sweetened with fancy flower decorated sugar cubes. 

We learned how to sing 'God Save the Queen', played some British games, and made beautiful fascinators that we wore to tea. 

Mmmm scones fit for a Queen - and a bear!

During tea we watched some 60 year old movie clips of Queen Elizabeth's coronation!  

Everyone, including Helene, earned the special UK Queen's Jubilee badge.  For part of the challenge we all contributed at least one item to several birthday party kits (cake mix, icing, party plate, napkins, balloons, invitations, etc.), which we have donated to a local shelter for abused women and their children.  

We said a fond farewell to Helene and wish her bon voyage as she looks forward making more Girl Guides friends as she continues her travels!

Helene's very proud of her badge
