Daisies worked towards the ORANGE – Responsible for What I Say and Do, petal.
The girls did some charades showing them being responsible. Each girl picked a slip of paper with a “chore” they had to act out and see if the other girls could guess which responsible activity they were acting.
Then, we did a little excercise by responding with a jump for hearing something that makes them happy and a sit-down when they heard something that made them feel hurt. Leaders would say something like, “I love you” or “Why’d you wear that?” and see if they understood whether or not the words (what they say) were nice or mean.
Then we made chore charts to keep at home…which all turned out SUPER cute! Each girl got to fill in 4 chores they work on at home. Chores included, clean my room, put away dishes, feed the dog, etc. A smaller version was sent home as homework so they could bring them back and show the leaders that they followed through on their action item to be RESPONSIBLE at home for the week.
We’d like to call out Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin River Valleys because their website is SOOOO comprehensive and helpful to Girl Scout Leaders! We use it as a resource for so much of what we do!
