Try some of these fun activities at your next Girl Scout event!
Ingredients: chopped fruit such as strawberries and bananas (bite-sized pieces); mini marshmallows; chocolate chips; waffle ice cream cone (must use the waffle cone); aluminum foil
Mix the chopped fruit, marshmallows and chocolate chips in a bowl. Wrap each cone in foil. Add the mixture of fruit, marshmallows and chocolate chips until the cones are full. Fold over the foil so the cone and its contents are completely wrapped up. Lay on a metal grate in a dying fire or in gray coals. Rotate the cone 2-4 times. After 5-7 minutes, the cone is ready to eat and can be eaten with a spoon or like an ice cream cone.
Ingredients: 1 can of buttermilk biscuit dough; vegetable oil for frying; 1 cup sugar; 1-2 tablespoons cinnamon, according to taste
Heat about two inches of oil in a large pot. Separate the biscuits on a cutting board and cut a hole from the center of each. Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar into a paper bag; close the bag and gently shake to mix together. Fry the biscuits in the oil, flipping them over with tongs when they are golden brown. Check after one or two minutes to make sure the bottom is also cooked. Once both sides are finished frying, let them drain on paper towels or a plate. Then, drop them in the cinnamon and sugar mixture and shake them up. You can also fry the doughnut holes.
Supplies: cardboard tubes (from paper towels, toilet paper, wrapping paper, etc.); paint (any colors); paintbrushes; glue; googly eyes; fabric or paper scraps
Cut the tubes into toilet paper size tubes if not using toilet paper tubes. Paint the tubes and let dry completely. Once the tubes are dry, place thumb along the top of each tube and smush it in, doing the same on the opposite edge; this creates the ears for the owl. Cut the fabric or paper scraps for beaks and wings. Glue on the googly eyes, beaks and wings. Allow to dry and you’re finished. You can also create other animals with pointy ears such as cats and foxes using the same materials.
