We just had our Thinking Day festivities. My troop had Egypt. We had the visiting girls help us build a cookie pyramid. We bought Sugar wafer cookies (we found squares at the SAMS club) and made buttercream icing for the mortar. Each girl that came to the booth was asked to help build the pyramid. At the end of the day we ate the  confection.

We also served some traditional Egyptian food, including Abusa (baked cream of wheat, butter, brown sugar and yogurt) and dried fruits.
