They can sing GS songs to pass time. They should be talking to the customers and bagging the cookies. Keep them involved and not just talking to themselves.

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl

Don't have all the girls manning the booth at once. Two or three at a time with an adult to watch over them and another adult nearby works well.
Warn the girls about being too "in your face" about asking people to purchase and remind them to say "thank you for supporting Girl Scouts" not just when someone buys but also when they say they have already bought cookies.

Booth Sale
Etiquette
V O L U M E 1 , I S S U E 1 P A G E 3
Have you tried….?
• Selling at a garage sell? Use this
opportunity to turn bargain hunters
into cookie customers.
• Selling by Fan Van? Decorate a
troop leader’s or parent’s van, SUV,
hatch-back or truck with streamers,
washable window paint, posters, etc.
Ask permission to park at a local
business to sell Girl Scout Cookies
from your vehicle. OR Drive
through a safe neighborhood and
allow girls to go door-to-door.
• Selling at a Tax prep office? It’s
tax time and there is a lot of
traffic around these places—
which makes for lots of potential
customers.
Other places to sell:
• Car dealership
• Gas station/Auto repair shop
• Hair salon / Barber shop
• Farmer’s market
• Coffee shop

I want to get to a healthy weight and stay there forever. I don't have to make huge changes all at once, just small ones consistently.

Make sure there are enough parents to keep any eye on the girls.
