One of the three main Girl Scout holidays falls square in the middle of many Council’s Girl Scout cookie selling season. It is a very busy and stressful time for leaders, and for many, they are doing it all. From planning meetings to doing cookie booths, leaders do not need one more thing to plan or create.

World Thinking Day is celebrated on February 22nd each year. The GSUSA website has activities that girls from 146 countries around the world can do together. Another option that many leaders choose is to select one country and focus a meeting around it.

In a blog post from my Daisy site, I created an EASY five step meeting plan for leaders of any level to use. One part of the guide is step four, the craft. An easy, no brainer, inexpensive craft to do is to make a Swap based on the country you selected.

Making Friends has many countries available. Here are just a few.

For a complete list of countries available for World Thinking Day Swap Kits, you can find them here. You will need to scroll down a bit before you get the the kits for WTD.

A Short Video About Cookie Selling from GSUSA

I discovered this wonderful video from the GSUSA on YouTube. Do not be taken aback by the 2013 date…the message still holds up and applies today. It drives home the point I have tried to make for years that girls should not get kudos for selling cookies that their parents or other family members sold for them. Yes, the troop benefits from the profits, but the child does not learn anything other than that she gets a bigger prize than the others who sold less.

I will always believe that the girl who sells 25 boxes on her own is a top seller…not the girl who “sold” 500 boxes because others sold the cookies for her.

Enjoy!
