Join a Group • Make Friends • Create Cookies • Have Fun!
The best way to learn is by DOING! McGoobers have termed following along and creating the monthly McGoo U cookies as “doing their homework”. There are no grades and the main goal is to learn and have fun. By completing your homework every month, you can earn patches that will be sent to you as you continue to participate (details about varsity letter and patches here).
Turning in your homework is simple… just post a picture! You turn your homework in by creating the current month’s cookies and posting a picture of your results on social media (IG, FB or twitter) and including the hashtag #mcgoouhomework .
Homework Groups are local gatherings of McGoo U members who want to create socially! Homework Groups get special deals on supplies, earn badges, and learn together.
So Happy Together!
Something magical happens when you create with others. Gathering your tribe helps establish an atmosphere of motivation, inspiration, and support for one another. Each group has it own flavor, because each ingredient is unique! What spice will you bring to your group?
