Here is a short tutorial on how I made ours….

5 yards of thick cos grain ribbon made 18 lanyards, it could make more or less depending on how long you make yours.

IMAG2767

I had gotten a bag of these at a yard sale for a dollar I like using these for the lanyard clip than the two-part way you see a lot online.  Lace this through the ribbon first.

IMAG2769

Then sew the ribbon together.  I sewed it three times across because the girls will pull on them I am sure.

IMAG2770

I printed out the cookie variety and the price cheat sheet and stuck them to a green paper to match the ribbon.

IMAG2818

Once I cut them out I laminated them and cut the out again with my helper…

IMAG2819

Punched a hole with the handy dandy crop-o-dile ( oh my she was little back then)

And hooked the to the lanyards!

Troop 1391 Walk About 2013

Standard

If we thought our first booth was cold it was nothing like our walk about! Last week was girl scout week and also walk about week, so we cleared our area with council and made plans to walk on Monday.  Unfortunately, it poured rain and hailed so we cancelled and rescheduled for Wednesday the only day the whole troop could make it. We watched it snow and get colder ALL day, but we couldn’t cancel or we wouldn’t be able to do it and my girls wanted to experience everything this year.  So they bundled up and met in my garage. I had the table all set up for the parents to grab their newsletters and sign up for activities coming up because I am organized and it was the perfect time right??  well no, lots of parents were too cold to even get out of the car LOL!

DSC05296

Of course my soon to be Daisy was a helper her preschool class was collecting change in that bottle for the Ronald McDonald house so she made sure to put it out there….so sweet (-:

IMAG3693

The girls grabbed their cheat sheet lanyards and  packed up all the wagons to started out….

DSC05289

They worked so well together I couldn’t believe it, being that cold surely there was going to be a cranky one I would have to send back to the garage to stay with my co-leader Abby but NO they were amazing. 

DSC05291

They took turns and was polite we even found out there was another leader in my subdivision who wished us luck then promptly had three girls run out of her house in the snow the other direction with cookies in hand to sell to the neighbors.  NOT the Girl Scout Way especially since I signed up for this neighborhood and had gotten approved ANYWAY I digress.

IMAG3708

We went half way around the neighborhood and sold 10 boxes of cookies, saw people literally look out windows and not answer the door, taught the girls what no soliciting means and that boys can be ridiculous and girls can be giggly!

IMAG3701

My super mom Stacey walked with us and was just as impressed with these girls as I was so we went back to the garage for snacks and to get out of the wind.

IMAG3705

Our Harlie brought snacks and then I made smores mix too!

IMAG3640

The girls took that to go once their parents picked them up. After snack they went right back out in the drive way to hold signs and try to sell more while the parents where stopping to pick them up.

DSC05298

You have to handed it to them come rain, sleet or snow the Girl Scouts are always selling cookies LOL!  And their helper stayed in the garage still doing her part (-:

IMAG3691

ALSO Since all my parents had to come in the garage to get their scout I made the most of it by having any info I needed to pass out and sign up sheets for upcoming events ready to pass out right there!

IMAG3710

It was a cold but fun day and we can’t wait until next year !
