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 “Honest and Fair” 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 honest and fair
  • Be Creative (Craft)
  • Get Moving (Game)
  • Put honest and fair 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!


Other Fun Honest and Fair Petal Activities

Share a Dove Snack (Practicing)

What you need: Have a bag of Dove candy(or any other candy for that matter) and gather clear cups for each girl. You will give each girl a clear cup and write their name on the outside. Then without explaining anything start handing out candy, and counting out loud as you do. The first girl give her 5 pieces, the second girl only give her 4, maybe third girl gets only 2. As most kids do the girls will start to complain and probably tell you “This isn’t fair” or “Why did she get 5 and I only got 2?”  After you have handed out candy to every girl it is time to ask the girl how we can make this more fair? How do we make it so each girl gets the same amount of candy and divided more fairly? This is where you give the girls time to figure out how to equally divide the candy. This will teach your girls the importance of sharing and being fair to everyone.

What Do You Stand For? Character Building Card Game (Game)

I found this on amazon a while back and let me tell you its a great way to get your girls talking, it has amazing scenarios to work through, there are many cards that will fit into the other GS Laws as well, so make sure to pick out the ones you want for the specific law you are working on.

Being Honest Candy Game (Practice or Game you pick where it fits)

I may like candy a little to much. You can always pick to do this with color beads if you don’t want your girls to have to much candy. Put the M&Ms in a bowl and have girls pick one out without looking. Whatever color they pick have them tell group the corresponding topic. Of course then they can eat the candy

Tell Us:

  • Red: Something about Yesterday
  • Orange: Something you do well
  • Yellow: Something about your family
  • Blue: Something you learned last week
  • Brown: Something you can’t live without
  • Green: Something you watched or listened to Yesterday

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.
