Planning out your Girl Scout troop meetings? Here is how our troop handles snack time during meetings, along with a cute daisy pudding snack idea! Check out our first troop outing at As You Wish, where our Daisies got to paint a special petal box.
As I previously mentioned, I’m a co-leader for my daughter’s new Girl Scout Daisy troop. I lucked out that my co-leader is a former kindergarten teacher, so she has the Daisy curriculum covered and I get to head up all things crafty. You know that’s right up my alley. I’ve been hot glueing Daisies on ALL THE THINGS, someone should probably pry the glue gun out of my hand before I turn everything into a Daisy!
HOW DO YOU HANDLE GIRL SCOUT TROOP SNACKS?
Our meetings are typically right after school and the girls are always hungry, so we make sure to carve out some time for a snack. Many troops set up a rotating snack schedule and have parents sign up for snack duty. Due to meeting logistics and some food allergies, we felt it was easier for the leaders to handle snacks at this stage for our troop. Snacks are provided using a portion of the troop dues that our families pay.
WHAT ARE SOME GIRL SCOUT DAISY TROOP SNACK IDEAS?
I recommend heading to Costco to stock up on bulk snacks. Here are a few snack ideas: pretzels, clementines, yogurt tubes, carrot sticks, trail mix, applesauce pouches, raisins, cheese sticks, apple slices, graham crackers, etc. We will be having our girls bring their own water bottles and we also have access to a water fountain at our meeting location. At our meetings, the girls will take turns helping set up or pass out snacks as part of the kaper chart. I couldn’t help crafting up a special daisy pudding snack for our first troop meeting!
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO MAKE DAISY PUDDING SNACKS?
You’ll need the following supplies to create these easy daisy pudding snacks:
HOW DO YOU MAKE DAISY PUDDING SNACKS?
We’ll be trying to keep our snacks mostly healthy, but wanted to give the girls a fun treat for their first troop meeting. To create daisy pudding snacks, use a hot glue gun to attach a faux daisy to the handle of a blue plastic spoon. Place a tablespoon of green sprinkles inside of the small plastic cups, one for each girl. At the meeting, have the girls add the sprinkles to the pudding cups to look like “grass”. Place the daisy spoons inside the cups and enjoy!
