Download and print this Girl Scout Cookies Game to help your troop girls learn the cookie varieties and be prepared for sales this year. The downloads can be found at the bottom of this post.
It is that time of year that everyone around our nation loves. It is Girl Scout Cookie Time!
Pretty soon Girl Scouts across our country will ring doorbells and ask if you want to buy Girl Scout Cookies.
If you are a scout leader or cookie mom, you are probably busy planning your sales. See my tips for Girl Scout Cookie Booth Sales.
You might be worried about how your girls will do, especially if you are a Daisy leader. I have created a Girl Scout Cookie Game to help ease your concerns.
Over the years I have created updated versions of these Girl Scout Cookie Games.
I find myself looking back at the old versions of this game to figure out which one has the right cookies. To make it easy for you, I am going to update this post each year with any new cookies.
The two bakeries that make Girl Scout Cookies are ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers. Our council used to sell the cookies from ABC Bakers, but now we sell the Little Brownie Bakers varieties.
The only cookies with the same name for both bakeries are Thin Mints and Girl Scout S’mores. The Thin Mints are pretty much the same for both, but the S’mores are completely different.
Your girls will probably encounter someone asking for cookies from the other bakery.
Girl Scout Cookies Games Printable
I created this game with 9 colors. I recommend printing out the game board on regular paper and laminated it.
The game cards were printed on card stock, then cut out to use.
Each girl should get a zippered snack-size plastic bag with the game cards, 4 gem game pieces, and 2 dice.
The following instructions are included in the printable.
GS Cookies Game Instructions
Object: For the scouts to learn the cookie varieties being sold and the pricing of these cookies.
Supplies: Girl Scout Cookie Time Game Board (laminate for durability), Girl Scout Cookie Time Game Cards (on card stock, cut out), dice, game pieces (glass gem pieces or similar)
Set-Up: Each girl gets a game piece (2-4 girls per board). Shuffle cards and place face down.
Play: Roll the dice to determine who goes first. Take turns in clockwise order.
Variation One: The first player rolls the die (or 2 for older girls). They say the number that comes up and then tell everyone the price of that many boxes of cookies. (Ex: if your cookies are $4/box and they roll a 3, their answer should be $12.) If they get the answer right then they get to pick a game card and move forward to that space, stating the type of cookie. Keep playing (reshuffling the cards if necessary) until someone reaches the end. You may just want to use the named and/or pictured cards at first for younger girls or until they are aware of the varieties.
Variation Two: Remove one of the sets of cards so that there are matches of 2. Place cards face down in a grid. Girls take turns by turning over 2 at a time in efforts to make matches. If they get a match then they can roll 1 or 2 dice and move forward those many spaces. You will probably need to reshuffle the cards to get all the way through the board.
or Create your own Variation!
Note for Little Brownie Bakers: Since they have stopped making some varieties, there is one blank game piece. Customize it pieces to fit donations for military, donations to the troop, etc.
Get older scouts involved in helping younger ones play.
I hope your cookie sales go well! Throw a Girl Scout party to celebrate when sales are over.
