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 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.

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

- If someone is having a bad day you ask? ARE YOU OK?
- When you meet someone new you say? NICE TO MEET YOU
- When your parents ask you to do something you show them? 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…

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.

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.
