5 Fun Ways To Earn The Daisy Responsible for What I Say and Do Petal


As a Daisy Scout, 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 “Responsible for What I Say and Do” 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 responsible for what you say and do
  • Be Creative (Craft)
  • Get Moving (Game)
  • Put being responsible for what you say and do 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.

Watch what you say – Words Can Hurt

Give each girl a copy of a coloring page and have them color the picture. Then tell the girls to crumble the picture into a ball, and then smooth it out.  Tell them to look at all the wrinkles left on the paper. Tell the girls what it means to say something bad or mean to someone will leave a mark, it wont go away. Some marks don’t show others do. A girl scouts job is to be responsible and not say things that might hurt someone on the inside. Then have a discussion about what words hurt and what words are nice.

Responsible and Respectful Puzzle Game

In this fun game the girls will start off by laying out the 20 pieces of the puzzle, each with a question designed to stimulate conversation between girls. As each question is answered, the piece is turned over and the girls will be putting puzzle together.  When the puzzle is completed, the girls must search the pictures to find the animals being friendly and respectful.  Click here: Who is Being Responsible and Respectful?

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.
