Girl Scout Kitchen Fun No Bake Activity

As I mentioned in my 2019 Zero Waste Goals, I recently became a Girl Scout leader. I am a co-leader with one of my really good friends who just happens to also be one of my roommates.


We are currently working on the Programs on Demand Kitchen Fun badge. The goal of this badge is to discuss kitchen safety, identify and define kitchen gadgets, understanding the parts of a recipe, and applying the knowledge learned to some sort of cooking activity. This badge and activity can easily be completed by a Daisy troop through to a Junior troop.  

No Bake Activity

Due to the fact that our troop meets in a classroom we do not have access to a microwave, fridge or oven. If your troop is under the same circumstance than do I have to perfect treat for you. Awhile back I saw a recipe for Girl Scout Trail Mix on Pinterest, but didn't pay too much attention to it since I was not a leader at the time. Then when the need for a no bake treat came up I knew exactly what I wanted to do. After searching on Pinterest I finally found the original Pin. Here is the link to the blog that inspired our activity.
I decided to make some changes to the recipe because I did not feel as though we needed all of the different ingredients. When it comes to this recipe you can modify the ingredients according to your budget and any allergies or food sensitivities that you have in your troop. I also decided to make my own recipe card. I made sure that the recipe card fit in a sandwich sized plastic bag so that if the girls chose to they could put the recipe inside of the bag. If you are interested in using this recipe for your troop the link to the recipe and recipe card prints outs will be below.

Effective Way of Doing the Activity

Before we started our activity we all put on the aprons that we decorated the week before. As a troop we found that the best way to complete this activity was to have one girl read the ingredient and then she would be the first one to put that ingredient in her bag. Then we would pass the ingredient around the table until everyone had some in her bag. Using this method worked best for us because we have a small troop. If your troop is larger than 10 girls I would recommend having the different ingredients spread out and the table instead of using the circle-passing method. We also used small paper cups to evenly distribute the ingredients to make sure everyone got the same amount. I found that doing it this way allowed for us to bond and talk as a troop while everyone was taking their turn adding the ingredient to their bag. This also gave us time to talk more about the meaning behind each ingredient and how it relates to each individual in our troop and to our troop as a whole. We were also able to practice listen skills each time someone read. This part of the activity incorporated the cooperative learning with is a hopeful outcome of this program and badge. When we finished the activity we made sure to say that in each bag we have created a Girl Scout troop that is unique, strong, respectful, friendly, and full of laughter.

Reasonable Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule

Reasonable Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule After my first semester of college I have developed a cleaning routine that I have been able to keep up with. You can read my previous blog post about What I Learned In My First Semester of College . Over the past few months I have experimented and I am confident in the routine that I have created.  Personalize When it comes to personalizing the schedule you could add or take out the different chores. For example I also wash my retainers weekly and monthly my roommate and I decorate the marker board on the outside of our door. We also only clean our mirrors when needed since we have found that they do not seem to become too dirty regularly. Something that I would make sure you sanitize every week would be the surfaces that you are constantly touching. That means light switches, door handles, and your desk. By doing this I managed to avoid getting sick when my roommate and other floor mates go sick. Another task that you could add to y

Bullet Journal Fitness and Workout Spread Ideas

If you want to purchase some of these spreads you can buy the digital bundle from my Etsy shop: Simply Paperless .  I had created six different bullet journal fitness and workout trackers/spreads. These spreads were made in my digital bullet journal using the GoodNotes App.   I highly recommend to use a stylus when using GoodNotes as a digital bullet journal. For this project I used the Adonit Dash 3 Stylus , which I highly recommend. I also recommend the Bargain Depot Stylus 2 Pack  from Amazon. Daily Workout Plan This first spread can be used to plan out what exercises you plan to workout each day of the week. I would recommend this spread for those who are just starting to workout. I did not created the workout that is used as the example for the content of this spread. The workout is from Pintrest Workout Plan .  Workout Tracker This next tracker is in the format of a monthly calendar. In order to track the different workouts accomplished throughout

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus Book Review

Reasons For Reading This Book: Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus was Jackie's choice for the month of October. Jackie is the host of The Readheads Podcast Book Club. This is a monthly podcast book club that I have been apart of since it was established in 2020. I love getting to hear the thoughts of the hosts each month.  Content of the Book: Elizabeth Zott is a chemist but is much more than meets the eye. She is not only beautiful but also extremely smart, confident, strong, and not afraid to beat to her own drum. Elizabeth is one of the only female chemists working at Hastings Research Institute. She is viewed as different by everyone there. It's there that she meet Nobel-Prize nominated chemist Calvin Evans. Calvin who falls in love with Elizabeth is described as a loner, grudge holder, and extremely brilliant. Fast forward a few years and Elizabeth is now a single-mother working as the host of the most watched cooking show, Supper at Six . With Elizabeth's ways of
