The Beanie Song
Words and music by Marilyn S. Dean I’m a Brownie in a beanie. ‘Neath the beanie is my face. My face has eyes to see with, My eyes see friends to be with, My friends will all agree with me That we Brownies always brighten up the place.

Brownie Greeting Sign
To make the Brownie greeting sign you hold up your first two fingers shoulder-high. The two fingers stand for the two parts of your Brownie Promise. Your thumb holds down the other fingers.

Brownie Handshake
You shake hands with your left hand and, at the same time, make the Brownie greeting sign with your right hand.

Magic Quiet Sign
This is a bit of magic used by all Girl Scout troops. When a Girl Scout leader has something important for everyone to hear, she does not have to blow a whistle or shout, “Quiet, please!” She just holds her right hand up high without saying a word. As soon as you see a leader’s hand go up, you raise your own hand — and stop whatever you are doing or saying. Soon every hand is up. A magic hush falls over the room, and everyone can hear the leader.
