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 “Be a Sister to Every Girl” 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 a Sister to Every Girl
- Be Creative (Craft)
- Get Moving (Game)
- Put Being a Sister to Every Girl 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.

Other Fun Be a Sister to Every Girl Petal Activities
Make a Friendship Tree
Give each girl a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper and have them draw a tree on page. Then have each girl and leader go around and put their fingerprint on the tree and sign their name.
A important part about being a sister to every Girl is trust. This game have girls form two parallel lines to make a path for another girl to run through. The girls making the path extend their arms toward each other to block the way for the other girls to run. When a girl runs through the line the other girls must drop their arms just before he runs through them. This activity will teach girls to trust their friends, as they begin to trust each other more they will move through the path quicker.
Sing Make New Friends
Below are the lyrics for all the versus. Do as many as your girls have interest in singing.
Make new friends,
but keep the old.
One is silver,
the other is gold.
A circle is round,
it has no end.
That’s how long,
I will be your friend.
A fire burns bright,
it warms the heart.
We’ve been friends,
from the very start.
You have one hand,
I have the other.
Put them together,
We have each other.
Silver is precious,
Gold is too.
I am precious,
and so are you.
You help me,
and I’ll help you
we will see it through.
The sky is blue
The Earth is green
I can help
to keep it clean.
Across the land
Across the sea
We will always be.

What do we do after your Daisy girls complete the petal?
Well of course give them the petal 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, date and troop leader.
