Welcome to my blog! I started it when I was a new Girl Scout leader and needed some kind of organized "to-do" list. I decided the best way to keep things organized was to start a blog. So here it is! My oldest troop has since bridged up to Juniors, and I've taken on a Daisy troop as well, so I will continue updating with new Juniors information and additional Daisy stuff too. My hope is to continue to update with every level as my troops advance. But we'll see.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope it's helpful!

Daisies: Pink (Rose) Petal

We've covered the dark green petal for Using Resources Wisely and I had to figure out something to come up with that wasn't environment-specific, necessarily, but would fit into Making the World a Better Place, for our pink petal.

After our initial activities (Kaper, Pledge, Promise, etc.), I had them gather into groups to work on this first bit.

We talked about how "caring for" can mean taking care of, or showing care (kindness, consideration, etc.) towards others. The girls brainstormed ways they can help care for the world around them.

After snack, we worked on some coloring pages for the Color-A-Smile organization. They provide the coloring page templates and your girls color them, then you mail them in to the organization, and they distribute the pages to nursing homes, VA hospitals, Meals on Wheels programs, etc. It's truly a wonderful organization!

Here are the pages we colored. I made sure the girls only wrote their first names, for privacy's sake:

We talked about how the simplest thing, like smiling at someone -- or coloring a picture for a strangers -- can help brighten a day and Make the World a Better Place!
