Mardi Gras Mother Daughter Dance, Queen of the Mardi Gras

We wanted to make our annual girl scout mother daughter dance special, so we decide to do a raffle. All the girls got a raffle ticket when they entered, for a chance to be queen of the Mardi Gras Dance. Our older girls wore princess crowns and they all got a chance to pick a younger scout to join them. The girls gave the younger scouts crowns to wear too. When the Mardi Gras princess court was all set we picked a name out of the raffle. The queen came up to the microphone and announced "Let Mardi Gras begin". It was so nice to see the older scouts with the younger scouts.

Gratify Gluten Free Snacks

Looking for new gluten free food products?  Well I won a give basket full of Gratify gluten free products.  I was a little leery a first because I thought there wouldn't be much flavor. The first pretzels I tried were the Dark Chocolate Covered Twists. The dark chocolate coating was rich and flavorful and the pretzels were crisp with a nice salty bite to them. Next, I chose the dark chocolate and peppermint covered twists. They are also wonderful tasting.  I am finding them a little addicting as I keeping running into the kitchen for more. In addition to being gluten free, the dark chocolate and peppermint covered twists also have 0g Trans Fat. The website lists the local store were they can be bought.  I can't wait to try more of these delicious products.

Spa Party Take Home Gift

This was our giveaway for our spa party.  Everything was brought from the Dollar Store.  We printed names with our slice cutter and then we taped over them with packing tape so the names wouldn't get wet.  Inside we put in flip flops, a back sponge with a scrunchy tied around the handle. Also inside was a back massage thingy, wash cloth, head band and little bowl for manicures.We used a lot of the items for the spa party. The prize back was less than ten dollars and it looked so cute!

The Nail Polish Game

If you have a lot of nail polishes, this is a fun game to play.  Sit the girls in a circle and then line up your nail polishes. Take the 1st bottle and put in in the middle and lay in on its side.  Each girl will spin the nail polish bottle and if  lands on them, they will paint one finger on their hand.  Put the polish at the back of the line and pick the next bottle Keep spinning the bottles until all girls have finished their nails.  They will all look cute with crazy nails.  This game took along time to play but they sure had fun!

Balloon Flip Flops

For a fun cheap craft we made these balloon flip flops.  The flip flops were from the dollar store and I bought about 100 balloons per scout.  The craft is so easy, all they have to do is tie the balloons around the tops of the flip flops. I recommend checking if any of your scouts have an allergy to latex.  One ours did and we didn't know it until her face started to have red blotches on it.  The girls had fun making the project and they looked so cute when they were done!

World Thinking Day-France

This is a really cute display for World Thinking Day.  I love how they have the Country's name displayed above the board.  Everyone gets so creative for their tables.  The Eiffel Tower adds to the table.  World Thinking Day is one of my favorite events of the year.

Luau Dance Centerpieces

These were the center pieces for the Mother Daughter Dance.  At some point during the Mother Daughter Dance the center pieces are always raffled off.  The bags were cute but a little disappointing.  Everyone wanted the bag because they thought something was inside it but they were surprised when it was empty.
Just a hint, If you want to do a center piece like this put something in the bag.  That way you won't have any disappointed little girls!
