    Has anyone ever worked with a Brownie troop to get a badge? I could probably get at least one troop to consider such a thing but don't know where to begin. Any suggestions would be appreciated....BEE

    cooking badge

    yes .,
    my Christina was in Brownies last year but I was a halper . Mybe you can contact the girl scout cons in your area to find the troops ,or just go to the local elemenery schools and ask to do a cooking demo and the do a small cooking demo with the troop . Bring all the kid friendly tools and( Catalogs for the MOMS ) You will probable get orders, Fundrasers, amd maybe a booking or two....

    Great Idea

    What a great idea! My PC New Year's Resolution is to be more pro-active but yet think outside of the box, and although I have thought about contacting Brownie Groups for Fund Raisers, I hadn't thought about badges!
    Will put some thought into that and see if I can't put a letter together - unless one of you girls has done that first - why re-invent the wheel!

    My neighbor's daughter is in a troop and she thinks they would be receptive to the idea but I don't know how the badge system works and I haven't done a kid's cooking show before. Since they're in the midst of selling cookies, perhaps it's time for them to make their own cookies as well. Look forward to a letter...BEE

    Brownies

    When we did the badge we put to gether a mexican taco some of the girls cut uo the vegtables some is an easy pudding dessert, some set the table . Now you can use all of the SA for the chesse, toppings hot pads .ect ( the MOMS will see how Great it looks , and want it) and the girls are working on there COOKING badge . You are killing two birds with one stone . They are getting what they want and you are gettiong your name out there., and maybe bookings, ect.....
    I'm not sure about boyscouts but they may have a cooking badge too if not the leaders are always looking for stuff to do at meeting and teaching boys to cook is a good thing
    Good luck Doreen Zaino pdzaino4@aol.com

    Scouting Tools

    Yes, they can get a badge for cooking, campouts, and lots of other opportunities that you can incorporate our tools in to. Break out those BBQ tools for the upcoming campouts, my-safe cutter, the tool turn about for first-aid, picnicware, etc., twixit clips for the leftovers, quickstir pitchers for mixing their batters, the new skewers, etc.
