Members of Girl Scout Troop 40211 (and some friends) spent a few hours Monday afternoon making Play-Doh from scratch, coloring it and packing it in containers.
The project was one of many they’ll complete as they work toward a Silver Award, which includes at least 50 hours of charity work in their community and is the highest award for Girl Scout Cadets.
The Play-Doh Project will be one of a number of items that youth can buy during the Hometown Holiday Children’s Christmas Bazaar at Chelsea First United Methodist Church on Park Street. It’s an opportunity for children in kindergarten-fifth grade to shop for the holidays from hundreds of affordable homemade and locally made items for less than $5.
The scouts have already participated in a food drive, collected toys, served and set up tables for a church breakfast and worked at Pioneer Days at Waterloo Village.
The girls have already earned a bronze award.
Participating in the project at the First United Methodist Church were scouts Sophia Sjogren (and her sister, Kiersten Sjogren), Natalie Gofton (and her sister, Sandra Gofton), Georgie Reynolds, Gretchen Kuras, Rheana Grudinski and Kia Frahm.
They were supervised by Troop Leader Karen Sjogren, Assistant Leader Janet Kuras with help from Monica Gofton and Denise Frahm.
