Cookie season is such a fantastic time of year for Girl Scouts. It is the time when we work together as a troop towards a common vision AND the girls work independently on personal goals. While learning about fund raising, finances and commitment; I like to be sure the girls in my troop also have a lot of fun and get to access their creativity. We like to design a booth and work together to make it happen. This year they chose the theme of Peace, Love and Cookies complete with rainbows, emoji’s and bright colors. It could not have turned out any better.
The first step was to build the booth. The dads helped and together girls earned their woodworking badge.
Next came the decorating. We gathered up our 9” x 12” craft cuts Kunin Classic felt in several colors, of course a lot of yellow! With felt as our main material, the girls each made emoji’s that we sewed in to a banner.
We also used a pennant die from Ellison to create a rainbow banner for the top of the booth.
Next came the rainbow pillow. This has been such a fun piece at the booth sales. The girls have worn it around their necks and let customers take photos with it as a prop!
The booth is so darling! It makes such a tremendous difference at the booth sales in front of grocery stores when shoppers stop by. The girls are so empowered by the never-ending compliments. Hearing them tell their stories of building and decorating as a troop family warms my heart.
The girls went one step further and made emoji masks to play with at the booth.
Here are some close-ups of the booth!
And here is a photograph of the fun patch all the girls earned!
You can now find an expanded color line of Kunin Eco-fi Classicfelt; Eco-fiPlus™ Premiumfelt and ShaggiChic non-wovens fabrics in cut by the yard at your local Walmart; please inquire as to what is available in your area.
Cheers to Girl Scouting and Cookies,
