Girl Scout Cookie Safety Bingo

Each cookie selling season we go over safety rules for selling Girl Scout Cookies. The following Bingo Safety game is great for younger girls who are beginners in selling cookies and as a great review for our older girls who are now pros. This is one of the best ways we have found to teach cookie selling safety and is a free resource on Little Brownie Bakers.

Safety Bingo is an awesome way to go over safety rules in a fun way. The directions are found on the Little Brownie website and look like this.

For our girls, we printed out each of the cookie bingo cards – found here in color and on cardstock so they will be more durable (they look like the one at the top of this page). – There are 20 different cards. Every scout gets her own card as we discuss each of the safety rules.

To call out the safety rules, there are colored signs that the leaders can use. They are found here. We just printed out one copy and went over them as the girls covered their picture icons. You can use about anything as Bingo markers. I used the flat glass beads that you can get at Dollar Tree that are flat on one end.  Amazon has them as well. We have also used colored buttons in the past.

The best part about this game, is that each icon is located on every card, just in a different place. This is great for the Daisies and Brownies. By playing multiple games, we are enforcing each of the rules. The girls love it!

Daisy- Make New Friends Swap

This super cute little idea came from one of our leaders. Our Daisies were learning how to make new friends and it was their first official meeting, so she found an idea from tracyblogspot and decided to do something similar.

First, she made little cards that said, Make new friends, but keep the old – One is silver and the other’s gold. These lyrics are from the old scout song, Make New Friends. Next, she gave each of the girls small pieces of gold and silver pipe cleaners to make little silver and gold rings. After punching two holes in the card, she used another small piece of a pipe cleaner to teach the girls how to attach their rings. Finally, on the back (my favorite part), she had the girls write the names of their old Daisy friends and their new Daisy friends.

The girls had so much fun making new friends, asking each other to spell their name, and singing the song. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next week.
