Some popular activities for Girl Scout Daisies are "Color Me Daisy," creating animal masks and making flower friends frames. Daisy girls are in kindergarten and first grade. These activities help Daisies meet their goals, which include gaining new friends as part of a troop, earning petals as they embrace the Girl Scout Law and making a difference in the community through a leadership journey.
"Color Me Daisy" introduces the girls to the Girl Scout Promise and Law. The activity requires the girls to color a series of pictures, which can be printed from the Girl Scout website, featuring different flowers and the parts of the Law for which they stand. For example, Lupe the Lupine is honest and fair, and Sunny the Sunflower is friendly and helpful. Other promises include being considerate, caring, courageous and strong. The girls learn to respect themselves and authority and to make the world a better place.
Another print and play activity is making animal masks. The leader reads "3 Cheers for Animals" from the Daisy Journey book to teach the girls about different kinds of animals. Then, the girls create animal masks for themselves. This activity teaches girls how they can care for animals, encourages imagination and promotes storytelling. The activity is appropriate for troop meetings, a day at the zoo or recruitment events.
Girls make flower friend frames by drawing the faces of their friends in the flowers of a printable. This activity is great for introductory troop meetings and recruitment events. It encourages friendship between the girls as they draw friends into their friendship gardens. The leader and the girls discuss what makes a good friend.
