Here is a Quick and Easy Idea for Your Last Daisy Girl Scout Meeting Before the Winter Break

Leaders, I know that you are busy, busy, busy this time of year!  With the holiday season upon us and all of the traditions we want to continue, the parties we have to attend, the presents we have to shop for and wrap, and trying to keep it all together with our volunteer activities can be very overwhelming!

I have a quick and easy meeting idea that is both festive and fun for your little Daisy Scouts and easy for you to prep for-even last minute. You may wish to have an additional parent or two helping you oversee the two stations.

Need to earn the Spring Green Daisy petal, Considerate and Caring? Use this project to earn it and you have another petal done!

Cookie Decorating


Sugar cookies

Sprinkles and/or colored sugar

Confectioners sugar


Cake decorating brushes (very cheap at the craft store)

Parchment paper, wax paper, or paper plates

White lunch bags

Curling ribbon

Plastic wrap or baggies

Hole puncher


Gift tags (the girls can make these out of pre-cut paper or use the labels you have at home)

If you have time to bake cookies for the girl, that is wonderful.  But if you do not, buy some plain sugar cookies in the bakery department of your local grocery store.  Make icing from confectioners sugar and water at home and place them in containers.

The girls can work in stations. One set of girls gets to decorate the cookies, places them on parchment paper or a paper plate that has her name on it in the corner.

The other set of girls is working on decorating the white bag with markers and stickers.  They can even decorate a gift tag and make a card if you find you meed more for them to do.

Switch stations.

One volunteer can wrap the cookies in plastic wrap or place in a baggie, put in the gift bag, punch a hole in the top and tie it with a ribbon. Don't forget to hole punch the gift tag and place it on the ribbon as well.

The girls can go home with a treat for the family that they made themselves!
