Wednesday, November 13, Cadettes Business Plan: Marshmallow Shooters Recently my girls earned the "Business Plan" badge. Girl Scouts designed this badge to be related to cookie sales, but my girls after selling cookies for the past 6 years groan any time I create meetings around cookie sales.
By Cadette level most girls have the concept of cookie selling down.
So in true Shannan fashion my concept for the "Business Plan" badge is a little less orthodox, but in no way any less rewarding, fun or educational. In fact, this may have been their most favorite meeting to date! I knew this badge had been successful when I had another leader contact me a few short hours after my meeting to tell me her girls were jealous of what we did at our meeting.
That tells me the girls were talking and excited! Over the summer, while visiting our little lake place in Austin, we went to an old fashion soapbox derby. While watching the races my girls saw a man selling marshmallow shooters simply made from PVC pipe.
The guns had been rudely painted with spray paint. My girls were enamored by the guns. Kids were shooting off mini marshmallows and having a grand time playing with the shooters. My girls begged me to buy a gun and I told them, we could easily make one of our own for half the price.
At that moment I realized what a great GS project this would be for the older girls! In my view, the Business Plan badge is all about creating a product or service and developing a business plan for marketing it.

When I began creating my schedule for this school year I remembered the Marshmallow Shooters and the Business Plan Badge seemed the perfect fit for this project.
Here is how I ran my meeting: I asked the girls if they ever dreamed of making a product, marketing it and watching the millions of dollars stream in. Next, we talked about young entrepreneurs and I asked the girls to name products that have been produced and marketed by young girls.
The girls mentioned silly bands, bottle cap necklaces and the bacon maker, all produced by young girls.
I then told the girls we are going to hypothetically market and design a business around Marshmallow Shooters. We will build and test the product and look at ways to best market the product and discuss the barriers to sales. I found a great Business Plan Worksheet attached on line which I tweaked a bit to make it more applicable to my girls and a detailed description on how to build the Marshmallow Shooters.
He was an extremely patient and kind man! I plan to return to Home Depot with a photo of the girls and their completed project.March - Shelby County State Bank once again is a Top Workplace in Iowa For the 3rd year in a row the Des Moines Register has listed SCSB as a Top Workplace placing 10th.
