My Name is Jen and I LOVE Girl Scout Cookies! It was exciting to learn that Pillsbury has NEW Girl Scout™ Baking Mixes that I can enjoy whenever I want. The Girl Scout Cookie sale is seasonal so it’s nice to have a product like the Pillsbury™ baking mixes with my favorite Girl Scout™ cookie flavor. Thin Mints® hands down is my favorite Girl Scout™ cookie flavor. I’ve loved them ever since I was a Girl Scout and nothing has changed in my adulthood. I have so many fond memories of being a Girl Scout and I’m glad I enrolled my daughters so they could have their own Girl Scout™ experience.
There are a few varieties available of the Pillsbury™ Girl Scout™ Baking Mixes. You have Girl Scouts® Caramel & Coconut Blondie Mix, Girl Scouts® Caramel & Coconut Cookie Mix, Girl Scouts® Thin Mints® Brownie Mix and Girl Scouts® Thin Mints® Cupcake Mix. You should know that I chose the Thin Mints® brownie & cupcake mixes. I took this opportunity to make it a fun baking activity to do with my daughters. My daughters love to bake and we have fun in the kitchen. Coincidentally one of their favorite Girl Scout experiences was earning their cake decorating badge.
Pillsbury™ Girl Scout™ Baking Mixes are very easy to use and come out smelling and tasting delicious. My kitchen had a very nice Thin Mints® aroma and I enjoyed every minute of it. It didn’t take much time to prepare the Thin Mints® brownies or cupcakes. My youngest daughter was so excited to make the chocolate ganache and dip the cupcakes. According to her it was the best part and they came out AMAZING! I just wanted to eat them! #GetInMyBelly I went to my neighborhood Super Target and purchased the Pillsbury™ Girl Scout™ Baking Mixes.
My favorite part of being a Girl Scout was the Girl Scout cookie sale and it still is to this day. Selling Girl Scout cookies taught me five essential skills: Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills and Business Ethics. The Girl Scout cookie sale allowed me to come out of my shell and interact with people. It also helped me develop the entrepreneurial spirit that I have. I was learning financial literacy and decision making at a young age and enjoyed it. I also was able to bond with my sister Girl Scouts and work towards a goal. Girl Scouts Rock!!!!!
Networking and meeting new people is a passion of mine but, sometimes I can be a complete introvert. I host events regularly, some are Girl Scout related events and others aren’t. I find that having a cute ice breaker will help with getting people out of their shell. One of my favorite ice breakers is BINGO! It gets people out of their comfort zone and chairs so they can play the game. It allows you to meet e everyone in the room when you are trying to get BINGO. The board has questions that you ask everyone and you can have them sign off on them once answered.
Create your own Girl Scouts BINGO board template and play.
• Create your questions that you would like displayed on the BINGO board.
• Print out your BINGO boards (Make sure you have enough for all attendees)
• Have pens, pencils or markers handy!
• Now it’s time to Play!
• Make it clear if you are playing for a horizontal row, vertical row or the whole board.
• Have everyone get up and start asking other people questions from the board.
• If someone can answer a question, they sign off on that space. (Have an Answer Key available.)
• When a player covers a row or the entire board they can call “BINGO!”
• The first player to call BINGO is the WINNER!
It’s good to have a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize for BINGO and BONUS prize for someone who gets the entire board filled out. By the time everyone is finished playing the game you know so much more about them and you have connected with a number of people. Feel free to download my BINGO board and tweak it as necessary. Have Fun & Happy Networking!
