We made it the cookie sale was over and our girls did great (with the exception of one family who has YET to turn in their money and simply disappeared)! The rest of the girls well they very much deserved an End of the Cookie Sale Party. So again this crafty leader wanted so badly to give these girls a great day! With this being the 100 year anniversary of the Girl Scouts I wanted to do something with the anniversary Savannah Smiles lemon cookie boxes. SO I made notebooks and bookmarks. (and yes I did this before all the pinterest ones came out! LOL)
The most time consuming was cutting all the boxes. I used my cropodile to punch all the holes and I did reinforce the back of the book marks with a thick green plastic so they would last a little longer.
Now this I did see on pinterest (love that website) I bought girl scout stickers from Micheal’s and simply added them to these large green paperclips then some stickle glitter glue and done ready to be used as a picture holder.
Whallah! easy peasy and no glass frame to break.
The girls needed something to carry everything in right? So I bought totes at the Flower Factory and iron ons off of Etsy that I printed out myself and ironed on the totes with the girls names. Then bought fabric markers for the girls to all sign each others bags (-:
I was so excited when Saturday came we ordered pizza, had juice boxes and snacks now the picture here is fuzzy but they began the party listening to Kids Bop and dancing their tushes off!
While we waited for the pizza to arrive the girls made a flower pot craft and we spoke about our community garden we were doing next!
PIZZA from Joseppi’s of course (-: since they saved us that one Saturday they won us over for life (see previous post about the shop)!
We then had the girls stand in line while we filled up the bags with all the goodies!
I made the notebooks, book marks and little photo holders with the picture, I bought cookie sale pencils, and bubbles…….but the girls favorite part THREE patches! Pizza Party, First Cookie Sale and Booth Sale Patch (-:
Here’s our girls ! (missing a few that day )-: )
On their way out I had a little display with a reminder about our Community Garden Project on seed packets and where the garden was located.
That way they could plant a little Cilantro for Mommy and Daddy too!
OH and one more thing who was the top seller??? that would be Pyper the oldest pea!! and nope it wasn’t rigged I wasn’t in charge of the cookie sale my co-leader was (-: I ma one proud Girl Scout Mom!!
