Meeting Number Two: Cookie Kick Off!

We had a girl as a guest tonight - she decided to join our troop!
We are up to 9 girls now - yippee!

Early Bird Activity: Still working on the Boxes                 
To burn off a little energy: NEW Song – I’m A Little Daisy!
(sing to the tune of Little TeaPot)
We are Daisy Girl Scouts, short and sweet (they frame their faces and smile)
Here are our hands and here are our feet (wiggle hands and stomp feet)
If you need a helper just give a call (hold up fake phone)
And we’ll come running one and all. (run in place)
Circle Time

·       Review Daisy Wheel. Leader Helper sits on my right

·       How do we feel today? Go around the circle and ask - as we are working on feelings

·       Theme of the day: Getting Ready For The Road

o   Have A Nice Trip! (Work with Journey book) I bet they didn't read the 6 pages, so I might read it to them...

o   Leader helper pass out trip  base patch for their vests.

o   How do we resolve conflict? (Caring Bridge)

·       Girl Scout Law or Promise
Craft time
·    Craft helper pass out craft bags. We are making book marks for our Journey books. I have large orange paint chip strips from the local hardware store and they are challenged to draw leaves on them. Green ribbon added to the punched hole on the end.
Cookie Kick Off

Why are we selling? What is the troop going to do with the money? (Part of Finance award)
What can we earn? Review the gift chart - and tell them they will actually SEE some of the awards at the cookie carnival on Sunday.     
What are we selling? Flavors and info on the 8 different kinds        
Coins! They need to know MONEY as part of the Finance Awards so I have a bag of coins for each of them with the money poem inside. I will teach it to them and send them home with it. The next meeting, we will talk about dollar bills.
Penny, penny, easy spent,
Copper brown and worth one cent.
Nickel, nickel, thick and fat,
You’re worth 5. I know that.
Dime, dime, little and thin,
I remember—you’re worth 10.
Quarter, quarter, big and bold,
You’re worth 25, I am told.

Sample one! They gave us a box of the new flavor to sample: Mango Creams! (They LOVED it)

Snack Time
·       Snack and beverage helpers pass out treats. It was Stem week - check out what she did!
Circle time
      ·       Christmas Song: Jingle Bells (practice for the Senior Center in December)
·       What is next: Cookie Carnival on Sunday!!! Pumped them up a bit!
      ·       Leader Helper passed out Fly Up patches earned for everyone registering early!
      ·       Squeeze helper

Clean Up helpers help pack up cart! A LOT of girls helped clean up - it was super!
Take home: cookie coloring sheet, 2 patches, bookmark, coins and reminder for the Cookie Carnival!
