Girl Scout Troop 363

Meetings every Wednesday @ Hilltop Methodist Church 6-7 PM

Whole Troop News

  • Next Meeting: February 10
  • This week's meeting will be focused on World Thinking Day and the theme of "Connect". This is a world wide celebration by Girl Scouts and Girl Guides. We hope to have some fun activities - and maybe even connect with girls from another country!
  • Parents - please make sure to sign your scout in and out every night - this helps us know who has done what activities, and to know who is there should something happen. Just a quick initial is all we need! Thank you!

Daisy Doings



Daisy's learned all about dolphins! We even made up our own dolphin language so if you hear your girls whistling and eeking---that is why!

We are going to do a sewing project in a few months and need parents to donate any fabric remnants they may have. We are going to make aprons! Next week is World Thinking Day and the group will be doing a troop-wide activity!

Brownie Bustles

We worked together in teams to create things out of foil and pipe cleaners. We focused on using teamwork to build and create. The team decided to start making foil hats and fancy decorations! It was a blast!

Junior Journeys

The Juniors took a little field trip to the near-by Smith's to look at how grocery stores market their products, how stores are set up to get customers buying more groceries, and how they make signs and arrange products to catch your eyes! Ask them why the milk and eggs are always in the back of the store!


We have just one more activity to wrap up a couple of new business badges and to get ready for their cookie booth sales - Good job!!


The girls are learning some great business skills!

Cookie Sales!

Cookie sales can seem like a lot of work, but we can also make it fun! We want the girls to learn about Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills, and Business Ethics. These skills will help them throughout their lives. Together, we can make this learning a positive experience for everyone!


Key Dates:

January 16 to February 7 - Girls take orders

February 27 - Pick up cookies (this is a tentative date, I will have more info later, but plan on trying to pick up cookies that afternoon)

March 11 - March 27 - Booth sales (again, more info as I get it)


Tips:

Have the girls sell the cookies! (See the video below!)

Check out the Girl Scout webpage for parents and girls for tons of tips for making your cookie season successful: http://www.gsutah.org/en/cookies/for-cookie-sellers.htm
