The Girl Scouts is the largest leadership organization for girls in the world, with 1.7 million girls enrolled in the program. However, when Juliette Gordon Low founded the Girl Scouts in 1912, she did so with the mission of helping all girls, not just traditional members. As an offshoot of the Girl Scouts of NYPENN, GirlCratery’s newest gift boxes aim to reach girls, both members and non-members, who want to build girl courage, confidence, and character, while making the world a better place.
The Baking Crate includes a variety of fun and colorful baking tools, such as a whisk, silicone cupcake liners, measuring spoons, cookie cutters, and a piping bag. While ingredients aren’t included, the crate has a ring of easy recipes for young girls to follow. The crate also contains stickers and a baking patch.
GirlCratery’s staff carefully curates each crate with considerable input from girls. While the Baking Crate is designed with girls aged 5 to 11 in mind, it is safe and suitable for girls of all ages. It can be used at home, at the grandparents’ house, or on vacation with the family.
The benefits of the Baking Crate are manifold. “Most importantly, the crate gives young girls the opportunity for hands-on, self-guided learning,” said a spokesperson for GirlCratery. “But it also saves parents and caregivers time and money by providing them with a ready-made activity box that they can explore together with the girl. Siblings can even get involved.”
The Baking Crate is available through GirlCratery’s website for $28.99. It can also be purchased as part of GirlCratery’s monthly subscription service, where girls receive a different-themed crate every month. This service is available in 1, 3, 6, and 12-month options.
GirlCratery was created by the Girl Scouts of NYPENN to empower and inspire young girls and their caretakers through monthly activities delivered straight to their doors. They partner with ARC of Onondaga to package and ship the crates each month.
