5 Great Ideas To Earn The Daisy Make the World A Better Place 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 “Make the World a Better Place” 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 making the world a better place
  • Be Creative (Craft)
  • Get Moving (Game)
  • Put making the world a better place 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!
