This is my first year in Girl Scouts and I had no idea what to expect when it came cookie selling time. Luckily, I have a really great dad who has helped me figure it out. Not only does my dad help me sell (by walking with me, coaching me on what to say, helping me add costs, etc.), he has also helped me sell cookies to his co-workers.
Since I am in school during the day, my dad has marketed our troop’s cookie sales to everyone at his work. He has spoken to people and handed out order forms, but the best way he has helped market our cookie sales is by wearing my Daisy tunic at work. Haha! He has no shame and is willing to do what it takes to help me and my troop. His co-workers love it and I think it helped me sell. My goal was 200 packages and I’ve sold over 400! Thanks for the help, Dad!
Our supportive Cookie Dad is Galen B. When we decided to sign up not only as a Girl Scout Daisy, but a troop leader as well, he was very supportive. He was excited for us and our journey. I told him how many cookies we were getting to start, 150 packages and he was surprised, but he was like, “You can sell those, easy!”
Even when we picked up 150 more (when we still had the 150), he was still supportive and in awe of our drive and determination.
I asked my husband if he could use my daughter’s playmarket base to make her a fun cookie booth. I explained what I wanted it to look like and off he went to Lowe’s. He was able to purchase the supplies for about $40 and came home to build it. Within a few hours, he was done. I purchased some Girl Scout Cookie fabric and got some green ribbon and felt from a friend. A day later we had a cute and very fun cookie booth! We have gotten so many compliments about our cookie booth. We owe it all to our super “gung-ho” cookie dad who supports all we do!
Sophia is a determined young lady. She loves to try new things and is always up for a challenge. Not only is she starting ballet (her second year), she is very excited about being a Daisy! She is excited for all the activities and journeys for this year. She is especially excited for our trip to Great Wolf Lodge (with all her hard earned cookie money!)
We are so blessed to have the Girl Scout opportunity, we are excited to see where Girl Scouts will take our daughter, and what doors it will open!
When my dad went to the cookie booth with me, mom already teased him and said that dad would have to be the dinosaur. I did not think he would volunteer, but when my troop leader asked, he stepped right up! My dad waved and attracted lots of customers. He really deserves to be named Best Cookie Dad!
My dad has been extra helpful with cookies this year. He helps by picking up more cookies when we run out at booths. He also helps find people to sell cookies to like at his work and at his Elks Lodge. My dad likes to teach me stuff like riding my bike and my quad. He takes me camping in the summers and teaches me how to use tools. My dad is a really hard worker and he teaches me why that is important.
As relayed to me by my daughter Evie: My dad is awesome! He stood out in below 25-degree weather and sold cookies with me (we sold almost 70 packages!) He encouraged me to tough it out and bought me a hot cocoa to keep warm. He helped me earn my cookie pin between customers by telling me about a financial goal he set as a kid (he collected cans to earn money to buy a Nintendo). He also helped me earn my Uniform to Uniform patch (he’s a correctional officer!) He is always my first customer (he likes the Samoas… they’re my favorite, too). And, he watches my baby brother while my mom (who is also one of my leaders) does Girl Scout stuff with me or does troop booths. He sometimes spends all day driving me to Girl Scout Camp and events too. For this year, I wanted a minion theme “There’s a minion reasons to buy Girl Scout cookies!” so we both wore minion stuff to sell!
My husband is the best Girl Scout dad. He has taken our daughter to every meeting since she started three years ago because I work at night. He participates in booths, events, and is always there to encourage strength and confidence in Leah. She is kind, giving, and always including others. I’m super proud of them.
Hi! My name is Mackenzie and I am 8-years-old. This is my first year in Girl Scouts and I am a Brownie. I wanted to join Girl Scouts to spend time with my mom and learn new things and make lots of friends. Since my mom is the troop leader, my dad helps me sell cookies. I want to sell 1,000 packages, so I can go to Elitch Gardens. My dad has been helping so much with my goal. I have sold over 800 packages because my dad takes me all over and comes to my booths. He is the best daddy in the world. I could not do it without his help.
I love Girl Scouts because I get to meet new friends and learn new things. Girl Scouts is the best!
My dad is a rock star this cookie season. My mom is our troop cookie manager. Our troop sells a lot of cookies, so we need to rent a U-Haul to pick them up. My dad helps by picking up our cookies and helping us unload the truck into our garage. He also takes his time to help me at my cookie booths, even in the freezing cold! I love spending time with my dad and appreciate the help he gives to me and my Girl Scout troop.
My Dad is Woody B. and he’s a great cookie dad! My mom is the TCM for our troop and he’s helped her with picking up cookies, sorting them, and triple counting both cookies and money when she starts to get stressed. He’s also taken me around our neighborhood several times to sell and deliver cookies even after a long day working at the Air Force Academy. He’s been running around on weekends to get our troop more cookies to sell and helped out at a few booths, too.
He’s a great Cookie Dad, but also a great supporter of our Girl Scout troop. He’s helped us earn our first-aid badge, engineering badge, and Outdoor Journey and taken us on hikes and is going to help us on our first overnight camping trip! I’m so proud that he’s my dad!
