Respect Myself & Others

Our Daisy Girl Scout Troop has been busy this winter earning petals (badges) for their vest! Over the past few weeks they earned the purple petal – respect myself & others.

Over a series of weeks we participated in a number of activities to learn all about respect. In our last session we had a special guest who helped us learn the proper way to wash our hands and then do a special activity where we learned the things our friends love about us.

Clean Hands – this is just one part of respecting myself and others. We talked about how this keeps us (and our friends) healthy and had a “hands on” lesson 😉

Here’s a quick video with the “how to”:

Have your daughter tell you the proper steps to hand washing!

Word Sharing – Sometimes we don’t know all the amazing things people think about us. This activity asked the girls to write something kind about each troop member.

At the end the leaders read aloud the comments and the girls picked their favorite kind word. The girls left empowered and feeling good about themselves!

We have such amazing young women in our Troop!

Responsible for What I Say & Do

This week Troop 2214 Daisies learned the importance of responsibility – and earned the Orange petal in our Daisy! 👏🏻

We love that we get to break our troop into three groups each week so the three leaders can get more individual time with each girl. This week the three groups were: creating a chore chart, chore charades, and a responsibility word game. The girls participated amazingly!

Chore Charts – the girls all made a hanging chore chart that shows what they are responsible for at home. We love a craft! 🖍✂️🖍

Chore Charades – We love to get our wiggles out so this was perfect. Our girls are quite the actors 😉

Word Game – this also allowed some wiggle release but we also had an opportunity to talk a lot about responsible words (thank you, I’m sorry) and actions (doing chores, doing homework)….and words (you’re not my friend) and actions (being mean) that are not responsible. It was great conversation. I am so proud of how thoughtful our amazing young leaders are!

The best part of being your daughter’s troop leader is when they take lessons or feedback and become better young women. That happened this week multiple times. Here’s one little Daisy at home the next day putting her chore chart to the test 😉

This is such an exciting time of year for our troop and our adorable little Daisies! One of the best parts of Girl Scouts is teaching our future leaders how to own their own business and support a cause that matters to them.

Prior to heading out to share our cookies, we taught the girls all about goal setting, counting money, and prepared for our booths by creating banners and signs.

We have our cookies – so find an adorable Daisy near you and get your favorites!
