Not connected with, affiliated with, approved by, endorsed by, or otherwise sponsored by The Girl Scouts of the USA.

If your looking for ideas to make your meeting more fun while teaching your girls how to be considerate and caring, you have come to the right place. Using some of these activities below to teach your girls not treat other people badly, never leave anyone out of games and always think about what you say so you don’t say things to hurt someone’s feelings.

I recommend the following activities that will reinforce being Considerate and caring:

  • Practice with activities
  • Be creative with a craft
  • Get moving with a game
  • Put into action with a service project or real life experience.
  • Optionally: If I have a song that related, sing that as well.

Below are a few ideas to get you started.

Considerate and Caring Activity Booklet

Do you want to skip all the planning? If so, use the Considerate and Caring Activity booklet and take your girls on a garden adventure helping a family of fairies on a mission to teach the world how to live by very important values. Using the leader booklet and the girl’s activity booklet your girls will complete lots of activities to help their fairy friends plant flowers, water gardens, and learn how to put important values to live by into action. With step-by-step activities planned for you all you have to do is gather the supplies listed, you can’t ask for a easier way to run your meeting. Learn more about the activities included and get yours today!


Other Fun Activities To Try

Kindness Challenge Bingo

This is a great way for girls to take what they learn about being Considerate and Caring and continue throughout the week after leaving meeting. Have their parents help keep track of all the kindness items they complete during week. Bring back to meeting and have girls discuss what acts of kindness they completed that week. Anyone get a BINGO or fill their card? Click here for card or create your own with a blank bingo card.

Daisy Scout Song

DAISY HAPPY FACE SONG
Tune- Brownie Smile

I’ve something in my little hand That you just cannot see…
It’s very, very special And it’s now a part of me.
The Daisy Scouts showed me How to put it into place…
And when I clap my little hands You’ll see my HAPPY FACE!

Motions: I’ve something… Cup both hands together, palms together
It’s very… Bring cupped hands to chest over heart
The Daisy… Open hands and cover face with open hands
when I clap… clap your hands
HAPPY FACE… Everyone give a very happy face.

What do we do after your girls complete the activities?

Well of course give them the badge to display proudly on their vest, they earned it!  Additionally If you are like many leaders we want to award our girls when they complete something even beyond just the patch. One great way to show achievement is with a certificate. Don’t worry you don’t have to make them, I found a resource that has done all the work for you and all you have to do is print them and customize the certificates with each girl’s name, badge or award earned, date, and troop leader.  Editable certificates perfect for awarding girls after earning a badge.
