Go Green Girl! Resuable Snack Kit

If you serve a snack at each troop meeting, put together a reusable snack kit. Items to include in the kit will vary depending on the type if snacks. Consider the following:
  • reusable cups
  • plates and eating utensils
  • cloth napkins
  • containers for serving the snack

Place items in a carrying case or bag. Each troop member takes turns taking the kit home after the meeting and having it washed for the next meeting.
