we made this at an adult weekend training, and then again with the girls in Girl Led during their campout weekend. Everyone loved advice? So that everyone gets some of each ingredient, don't just pass, walk around with a spoon/scoop. The girls at the front dumped all the good items, then there wasn't enough for everyone. They also totally filled their lunchbags, and didn't even eat it!

How To Make grow a girl scout troop trail mix ceremony

    While reading the story, pass the specific ingredient. We gave everyone paper lunch bags to put their ingredients into. ~Girl Scouts come in all colors, from all races around the world. Every Girl Scout is a sister no matter where she is from, no matter the language she speaks, no matter the color of her skin. God loves variety, and Girl Scouts are the colors of the rainbow. (M & M candies) ~We have a promise and a law. On our honor, we try to do our best to be fair and square (Chex cereal). ~Some of us are tall, and some of us are small. When we get together, size doesn't matter at all (pretzel thins/sticks and mini marshmallows). ~Sometimes we are nutty. We love to joke and play. We'd love to put a Girl Scout smile into everyone's day (Nuts...ASK ABOUT ALLERGIES FIRST). ~Sometimes we are quiet and thoughtful. We have special gifts of love and caring to give in service to those who need our help (Goldfish crackers, we used multi color ones). ~When we get together, we seem to make circles. We may sit in circles, play circle games, make a Friendship Circle. You could say that we are well-rounded (Cheerios). ~When we are busy planning a project, or doing a craft, we pop around until we're done (popcorn). ~Girl Scouts respect all living things. The earth is our home and we want to keep it safe for everyone (Animal Crackers). ~Girl Scouts are "chips off the old block". Girl Scouting began in 1912. Since then we all have been part of an old tradtion, and are proud to be part of the future (Banana chips or chocolate chips. We used semisweet and white chocolate chips). ~We get a kick out of wearing our uniforms, learning new things, helping others, and being together with our friends (Kix cereal). ~Young Girl Scouts may be hard to resist because they are fresh, sweet and new. But the older scout maybe more fun, because she has more experience (raisins). ~Welcome to Troop __________. I hope we will have a wonderful year!
