Laval-Mille-Iles District is super happy to have eight All Star Cookie sellers this year. It’s the most we’ve ever had in our district!
As we know, cookie selling is sometimes a daunting thing for Girl Guides. It pulls them out of their comfort zone. So how did these girls do it? I took a few minutes and asked 6 of them.
8-year-old Dakota said: “Be polite, and also ask them politely without being rude or anything.”
12-year-old Kira said: “Smile!”
10-year-old Erin said: “Smile, be polite and also say ‘Hello.'”
9-year-old Khloe said: “Give them cookies [samples].”
9-year-old Gabby said: “Don’t be scared!”
And 9-year-old Reiley said: “Well, there were a lot of things..because I was polite [and] they knew my parents or my aunt, one of them took a whole box [case].
The next big question was: “So do you girls think you can do it again next year?”
Some girls find cookie selling hard but these girls proved that with a polite and positive attitude, a beautiful smile, some sampling and a little help from their family, any girl can be a Cookie All Star!
