While this is more of a long-term project than a true ceremony, it is a
wonderful idea that younger scouts are sure to enjoy.

WINDOWS - let light shine throughout the house. Install five windows, one at a time, for each of the five Worlds of Girl Scouting, as your troop completes and activity in the World.
DOOR - add a door to your house if your troop uses an organized system of troop government. (Brownie Ring, Patrols, etc.)

DOORSTEP - when your troop does a service project, add a doorstep to your house.
PATH - build a path to the community by doing and on-going service project.
BUSH - plant a bush in the yard when your troop participates in an outdoor activity, such as a hike, cook-out or camping trip.
TREE - a shade tree will grow in your yard when you do an environmental/ecological activity.

FENCE - erect a section of fence for each sister troop activity you participate in (excluding fly-up and bridging ceremonies.
SHUTTERS - install shutters on each window to add beauty to your house when your troop participates in a "wider than troop" opportunity such as a fun day, service unit camping trip, etc. (excluding sister troop activities.)
OPEN GATE - build an open gate if your troop has a joint activity with a troop whose ethnic, racial or religious makeup is different from your troops.
DAISIES - plant daisies along the front of your house to show that your troop has participated in a traditional Girl Scout activity like Thinking Day, Girl Scout Week, Juliette Gordon Low's birthday, Investiture or rededication.
WOODPILE - to keep the home fire
burning, put a woodpile beside your house if the majority of parents contribute
active support to the troop in someway.
