With Daisy Troop 55321’s first-ever Girl Scout cookie booth coming up, we decided to learn more about the cookies and work on the “Count It Up” leaf.

We found an EXPERT cookie seller to help us learn all we could about the BEST way to sell Girl Scout Cookies. Girl Scout Cadette Claire helped us learn the names of each cookie and the price per package. We also discovered what is in each kind of cookie and why someone might want to buy each cookie. If you like to drink tea, you might want to buy the Savannah Smiles because they are yummy with tea!

Then, we practiced how to sell to customers. We each got to be a cookie seller and a cookie buyer, so we could practice our skills!

What else do you need for a cookie booth!? Booth signs, of course. We split up and made informational signs for our booth.

Finally, we all got to take home samples of each cookie to try with our families. The suspense is hard, but we can’t wait to share our newfound cookie knowledge with our families!

We are go -getters because we can’t wait to be courageous and sell cookies for the first time! We are also risk-takers because some of our members are selling cookies door-to-door and this is our first year of cookie selling. AND, we are watching girls lead in action by inviting an older Girl Scout to share her expert knowledge.
