Girl Scouts Daily Virtual Challenge - Dinner Special

Tue Jul 07, 12:00 AM - 11:45 PM

This challenge is less about making the dinner and more about planning it!

Daisies, Brownies, Juniors: Invite your family to have a dinner together! Pick the time, set a dress code, and do what you can to help with the dinner – especially setting the table. With an adult, do some research and find out how to properly set a table for dinner! Then, think of 10 things to talk about at dinner (or conversation starters). Don’t forget your manners and help clean up afterwards!

Cadettes, Seniors, Ambassadors: Host a formal dinner night! You can choose a theme or go classic. Create a menu for the night and encourage your family to dress in their fanciest clothing or set a specific dress code! Set the table using proper table etiquette and an appropriate number of dishes and silverware. Take pictures of your night! Remember – you do not have to do all the cooking! Maybe everyone in the family oversees making one course… and don’t forget to help clean up afterwards!

We'd love to see what you've created. Use this link to submit your work.
