Baking resources
Whilst baking might be a gender stereotypical activity, it is a great opportunity to learn about following instructions, different measurements and food hygiene - the best bit being you get to eat all the goodies at the end. Lots of our groups like to include cooking and baking sessions to help build essential life skills. For example, to celebrate Pride, GFS Dunvant baked lots of goodies and decorated them with the colours of the rainbow.

Bollywood dance class - eco-friendly gifts
Bollywood dance class
Bollywood dance classes are a firm favourite with GFS girls because they are so much fun. Girls at GFS Stanwix took part for Mental Health Awareness Week, as dance and exercise can contribute to better mental wellbeing. Learning the dance moves helps girls with their coordination skills and new ways in which to move their body. Dancing can also help them improve their confidence and provide an alternative way for them to express themselves. Some girls may not be aware of Bollywood dance and it is a great way to introduce them to another culture.

Girl bowling
Bowling trip for a GFS girl
When a GFS group is asked where they would like to go on an outing, the two most popular answers are bowling and trampolining. If the group has enough funds, trips are subsidised, but girls are asked to make a contribution. At GFS we don't want any girl to ever feel excluded because of her financial circumstances. If a family cannot afford to make a contribution towards a trip that the group is going on, GFS will find a way to cover the cost. £5 could cover the full ticket price for a bowling trip, so that no girl is left out of the fun and opportunities a GFS group has to offer.

Chemistry set
Chemistry set
At GFS we challenge gender stereotypes and give girls opportunities to get just as excited about science experiments as glitter crafts. Science gives girls the opportunity to create experiments, see what bubbles and what fizzes, grow crystals or make candy. £35 could give a GFS group an opportunity to learn about the effects of heat, measurements, crystallisation, chemical reactions and more. You can dedicate this gift to a friend or loved one and we will send them a personalised card - just add the details at the checkout.

Boxes of conversation cubes
Conversation cubes
Conversation cubes can boost listening skills and spark imagination. They are a great social tool to help get the girls in a GFS group talking about themselves, their identity, their lives and the world around them. Conversation cubes are a great resource to use at the beginning of a session to get girls chatting, opening up and connecting with one another.

Following on from England's historic win at the World Cup, cricket is beginning to take off at GFS and more groups are keen to get their hands on a cricket set so that they can bat and bowl their way to success. At GFS Eldon they took part in the Let's Be Women cricket project, learning new skills such as how to bowl and bat, as well as discussion and reflection.

Girls get active skipping
Double dutch skipping rope
Skipping is amazing exercise, not only does it build cardiovascular fitness, but it can improve bone density, balance, coordination and muscular endurance. Additionally, it can help develop mental skills such as focus, alertness, spatial awareness and quick reactions. “Get active” is one of the six GFS programme themes – we encourage girls to try an array of fun, challenging and sometimes quirky physical activities. By trying many different things, they can enjoy all the amazing things their bodies are capable of and understand that when it comes to keeping fit and healthy, one box doesn’t fit all. The benefit of using a long rope is that the girls can join in together and make successful skips a group effort, developing their team work, cooperation and communication skills.

Girls enjoy drumming - sustainable presents
Drumming workshop
In a drumming and storytelling workshop girls are empowered through the drum. Drumming and percussion can help self-expression, building confidence and developing communication skills. The girls get an opportunity to tell stories and share about themselves and their lives. At GFS we use a range of different activities to help girls build their confidence and ability to speak up. We also provide opportunities for girls to gain different experiences of the world around them. As part of the workshop girls will learn about the tradition of African drumming, making different sounds, different rhythms and working together as a group.

craft supplies for group
GFS group crafts top up kit
Whenever we start a new GFS group we always provide a bumper craft starter kit, but obviously these supplies deplete over time and need topping up. Glue sticks, felt pins and coloured card are often part of a GFS session. Whether its making compliments cards, magazine covers, posters of strong women, pride decorations or Mother's Day cards, it's important to always have craft supplies to hand at GFS.

Help girls learn to code
Group coding workshop
Coding skills are quickly becoming crucial in modern society and many world leaders in innovation are changing the way we live through technology. Research has found that little progress had been made in encouraging girls into careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) or other better-paid career paths. By gifting a coding workshop to a GFS group, you can help girls develop technical literacy and problem solving skills, but more importantly get them excited about and engaged with a topic that could be valuable to them in later life.

Getting creative - colouring, drawing, moulding, cutting and sticking is a great way for girls to explore different themes and have fun. That's why each new GFS group gets a bumper craft starter kit to get them going. From making posters about what in means to be a girl in modern society, to designing girl power t-shirts and making friendship collages, providing a craft starter kit to a new group gives them lots of opportunities to explore.

Girls learn football skills
Group football skills class
Many of the girls we speak to are passionate that football is not just for boys and they want opportunities to develop their skills, play matches and win tournaments too. A football skills workshop is a great way to introduce football to those who haven't played football before and give girls that are already passionate an opportunity to practice. Learning football skills can help with coordination, reaction times and dexterity. We love to give girls and opportunity to try different sports and activities so they can understand all the amazing things their bodies are capable of and find out what they love. Get Active is one of the six themes of the GFS programme and our sessions always include active games or physical activities.
