As a Daisy, your girls will have the opportunity to earn 10 flower petals, 4 leaves and the center of the flower. Each Petal representing a different value the girls should be living by. Today’s post is about the “Considerate and Caring” petal.

There is no wrong way to earn the petal, but I want to share with you a pattern that I follow when working with girls on petals

  • Practice being considerate and caring
  • Be Creative (Craft)
  • Get Moving (Game)
  • Put considerate and caring into action (service project or real life experience)
  • Optionally: If I have a song that relates to the petal we will sing that as well.

Today I want to share a few ideas to get you started.

Petal Fairy Garden Adventure Activity Booklets

First I want to introduce you to the Petal Fairy Garden Adventure family, which are 10 flower fairies ready to help your Daisies earn their petals. Your girls will go on a garden adventure helping their petal fairy friends plant their fairy flowers, water their fairy gardens, and learn how to put the value into action one activity at a time.

Everything is planned for you all you have to do is gather the supplies listed at the top of each petal section and enjoy running your meeting. If you are looking for a fun new way to help your Daisies fulfill the requirements for the petals and flower center, check out the Daisy Petal Fairies Leader Booklet and Activity Booklets for each girl. There are a number of options to fit into your troops budget including printing leader booklets at home or have them mailed to your house, as well as options for girls activity booklets.  Learn more and get yours today!


Other Fun Considerate and Caring Activities

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.

My name is Jodi Carlson, I am a mom, wife, & web designer and come with 25 years of GS experience. I am now sharing my experiences and helping other Girl leaders be great and successful and shape today’s girls to be the leaders of tomorrow. I was blessed with a Son in March of 2015 and stepped down as a full time girl leader, but missed planning and volunteering, so I decided after 25 years I have so many ideas to inspire girls and help leaders so I choose to build this blog and it has grown into a resource beyond GS, I am reaching girl leaders in many organizations.
