To prepare for cookie season, Girl Scouts has specific badges for all ages that lead the girls through age-appropriate activities to help them prepare to sell cookies. Daisies can earn leaves, older girls earn badges, and all of these activities help the girls learn how to interact with customers, set goals, learn about money, as well as to think about how they want to use the money they earn to pay for troop activities and to support charities that make the world a better place.
Here’s more information about the badges and leaves related to the cookie sale for each level. Complete requirements can be found in each level’s Girl Scout Handbook. Click here for an overview of the cookie badges from Daisies to Ambassadors.
In addition to these badges, the cookie sale is an ideal opportunity for Juniors to earn their Junior Aide Award. This award is for Girl Scout Juniors who help lead activities for younger Girl Scouts. By the time they are in 4th and 5th grade, Girl Scouts are cookie sale masters and they would be experts in helping younger girls learn about the different types of cookies, how to ask people if they want to buy cookies, and how to make change, for example. To earn the Junior Aide Award, Juniors must help lead activities at three different meetings. Click here for the complete requirements.
If you know of a Junior who would like to earn this award, or if you are a leader of a Daisy or Brownie Troop and you would like to invite Juniors to come and help your girls learn about the cookie sale, contact Medford Girl Scouts through this page and we will try to help you make the connection. https://medfordgirlscouts.org/contact-us/
