Cooking games teach girls how to cook in a relaxed environment. Mothers can take turns hosting cooking games at their homes. The girls can work in mother/daughter teams or individually with the moms as the referees. To commemorate these events, the girls can make scrapbooks of the recipes they create.

Princess Bakeoff

Girls enjoy making their very own princess cakes. Barbie toppers may be purchased, but girls can also use their own Barbie dolls as inexpensive alternatives by wrapping the hair and lower halves of the bodies in cling film before inserting them into the cakes. Once they bake and completely cool their cakes, have the girls frost their dolls' skirts with different coloured frosting and decorate them with colourful candies and sprinkles. When the princess cakes are finished, the moms should judge them. Each girl should win a prize for her efforts. Give certificates and crowns for categories such as: "Most Creative," "Biggest Skirt" or "Most Colorful."

Ingredient Challenge

The ingredient challenge game can be played multiple times. Challenge the girls by presenting three or more ingredients. Tell them to create a recipe using nothing else. For beginner cooks, start with just three ingredients, such as a lemon, asparagus and summer squash. The children may choose to zest the lemon over the vegetables before sautéing them or make lemon water and steamed vegetables. Moms should place a variety of cooking utensils on the table for the girls to choose from. Ingredient challenges will help girls think outside conventional cooking ideas and explore new recipes.

Girl Scout Cooking Recipes

Girl Scouts cookies can be enjoyed all year round by incorporating them into dessert recipes. Gather girls together to make their favourite Girl Scout cookie recipes such as, "Samoas® Kiss Brownies," "Peanut Butter Do-Si-Dos® Bundt Cake" and "Marvelous Trefoil® S'mores." The girls can judge which recipes they like best and hold a pretend bake sale, displaying their treats for their families to try.

Pink Pizza Party

Instead of hosting a regular pizza party, make it a pink pizza party. Take the girls on a field trip to the grocery store and have them search for pink foods that would make tasty pizza recipes. For example, make a pink fruit pizza out of watermelon, strawberries, raspberries and grapes by cutting the watermelon into rounds and topping it with the remaining fruit. Layer tomatoes, red peppers and pepperoni on top of pink tomato sauce (tomato sauce combined with cream or coconut milk) for a more traditional pizza. The girls can also cut the fruits and vegetables into different shapes to decorate their pizzas.
