Drama Queen planned such a fun activity for our Girl Scouts today! Since it was Tax Day, we decided it would be good to teach the girls about something a bit financial. There is a badge where they can learn about the ins and outs of buying a home. So we decided to let them build a home.
I made chocolate frosting and Drama Queen went to the store and bought graham crackers, then we rounded up all the random candy, chocolate chips, etc. we could find. Princess even made us some fondant shapes. We filled 10 bags with frosting, added tips, and set out a pile of paper plates. Everything was ready but the price sheets and Drama Queen took care of that.
Oh and the money... Dog Walker pulled all the Monopoly money from the board game for us and it wasn't long before the girls began to arrive. They were a bit surprised when Drama Queen gave them each $2000 and explained what we were doing. Just to get started would cost them $900, a plot (plate), panels (crackers), and concrete (frosting).
