Junior My Cookie Team Badge Activity
Decide How to Use
Your Cookie Money
Create a vision board to share your cookie business goals and show how your troop will use the money.
Time needed: 30 minutes
- Poster board
- Colored markers
- Pens and pencils
- Tape or paste
- Magazines and newspapers to cut out pictures (optional)
- Stickers and other craft decorating materials (optional)
- Device to take and print photos (optional)
- Computer and printer to print out images (optional)
First meet with your team to talk about all the different ways you can spend your cookie money. If you sold cookies last year, think about how you used your money. Do you want to buy snacks or supplies for your meetings? Or use the money for Girl Scout books, badges, or awards? Your troop may choose to use some of the money for a special field trip or to help others by funding your Bronze Award project.
A vision board is a great way to put all your dreams and goals into a creative space.
Create a vision board with images and words that express your cookie business goals and how your troop will use the money.
Your vision board could include a picture of your team or inspirational phrases to help you reach your goal!
Collect images to paste on your vision board.
Write phrases that inspire you and your team.
Give your board a title if you want. It could be “Cookie Sales Goals.”
There is no wrong or right way to create your vision board. It could be simple, or packed and colorful.
You can even use your vision board to decorate your in-person or virtual cookie booth.
Think about these questions:
- Did your vision board help inspire new ideas and goals? If so, which ones will you share with your troop?
- Visions can change over time. How do you see this as a starting point for your dreams and goals?
