5 Fun Ideas To Earn The Daisy Respect Myself And Others 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 “Respect Myself and Others” 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 respecting myself and others
  • Be Creative (Craft)
  • Get Moving (Game)
  • Put respecting myself and other 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 Guide and Sticker Book

Before jumping into the 5 ideas for respecting myself and other, 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 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: GARDEN ADVENTURE Leader guide and Sticker Books for each girl.  Learn more and get yours today!

Asking Your Girls What Should You Say…

Using the statements below as your girls to tell you what the best response would be. I put the response that would fit the question there could be more than one right answer

  1. What should you say if you run in front of someone? I AM SORRY
  2. When you let someone use something that you are using its called? SHARING
  3. When you ask for something you say? PLEASE
  4. When you receive a gift from someone you say? THANK YOU
  5. If you make someone else sad or upset you say? I AM SORRY
  6. If someone is having a bad day you ask? ARE YOU OK?
  7. When you meet someone new you say? NICE TO MEET YOU
  8. When your parents ask you to do something you show them? RESPECT

Roll Some Respect

You will need dice for this activity. Everyone takes a turn rolling the dice and based on what they roll have them answer the following statement.

1 – Showing respect is important because…
2 – I respect my parent(s) by…
3 – I respect my teacher(s) by…
4 – I show respect to my friend(s) by…

6 – I respect the world by…

Few Pinterest Finds you will love too…

From a Mom on Pinterest: We worked on self-respect since respecting others is taught in school. I recruited some Junior scouts to run little stations and split my troop into small groups. At each station the groups talked about one of the points on this map. The Daisies earned a sticker at each station. When they got all their stickers they earned the petal. I had the Junior scouts create and run their own mini-lessons for each point.

Song to Sing with Girls

The Smile Song

A smile is such a happy thing,
It lights up all your face.
And when it_s gone
You cannot see
Its secret hiding place.
The funny thing about a smile,
Is what a smile can do.
You smile at me,
I smile at you,
And both our smiles–make two.

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.
