National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend
Serious cookie aficionados have these tools because they make cookie making so much fun:
Cookie Jar with Airtight Lid | Cookie Press | Round Cookie Cutter/Fondant Cake Cutter/Biscuit Cutters Kit
Though I am being compensated for this post, all opinions are my own. I am sharing this post on behalf my my affiliation with the Mom it Forward Blogger Network.
These are skills that I learned as a young Girl Scout growing up. As a leader today (of two troops) that is something I strive for to teach the girls on an ongoing basis.
Girl Scouts is a great place for girls of all ages to learn necessary life skills, build lasting friendships and so much more.
Selling cookies has definitely got to be one of the highlights of our year although there are many other things we do, everyone, Girl Scout or not, gets excited when cookie sales start. People seek my girls out to buy cookies. We also volunteers in booths selling cookies as well.
The money that we earn is spent in various ways. We have made many community donations and have attended some really cool events.
We have packed seeds for families in other countries. We have camped with each other. We have bowled. We have made shampoo for third world countries. There are so many things that being a Girl Scout encompasses that it is hard for me
National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend is coming up on February 7th. Girl Scouts all over the USA will be selling cookies at local businesses near you.
You know that when dealing with Girl Scouts, these are girls who have learned about selling, goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.
The girls have skills unlike many of their peers simply because of their Girl Scout involvement.
