Girl Scouts This Week

At our last meeting my Brownie Girl Scouts were working on their Make It, Eat It patch.

These are the things that we did to earn our patch.
It was a fun troop meeting!

Herb Planting

I found this idea in the March Issue of Family Fun Magazine.
Using a cut, plastic pop bottle, we filled the top half with dirt, added parsley seeds, and inserted a stick with the "Parsley" written on it (and the girl scout's initials).
You fill the bottom of the container with water (covering the dirt in the bottle on top), which will allow water to seep upwards, keeping your dirt moist.

Troop Cookbooks

Each girl brought her favorite recipe to share.

The girls decorated a mini photo album cover, and filled it with the recipes.  We also included recipes for the things we would be making at our meeting (shown below).

Shirley Temples
The girls LOVED these!  So easy to make, and so yummy!
We used the recipe shared HERE

Walking Tacos
Instructions can be found HERE
We brought cooked taco meat kept warm in the slow cooker.  The girls were able to prepare their Walking Tacos buffet style, so they could make them just the way they'd like them best.

Ice Cream in a Ziploc Bag
Instructions can be found HERE
We were running short on time, so we had to send this one home with the kids.
We learned that the salt is key!  We also brought along mint extract and crushed Oreos, allowing the girls to create the ice cream flavor of their choice.

All of these activities proved to be lots of fun.
Best part is... you don't need to be a Girl Scout (or a kid, for that matter) to enjoy them!
