Our girls enjoyed earning the Daisy Petals Set, and they loved when they received fun patches for participating in special events. They proudly displayed these patches on a blue canvas bag we purchased from Hobby Lobby. I happened to come across this Amazing Daisy fun patch while picking up an order at our Council Shop. I decided to create a Girl Scout Law Activity for the girls in our troop to work on during Christmas I offered to purchase the Amazing Daisy patch for any girl who chose to complete the packet which was due at the first meeting in January.
The packet consisted of four pages that were designed to help the girls learn the petal colors and the corresponding Law components. The girls also had to apply the Law to different troop activities. All of the answers could easily be found in the packet itself or in the Girls' Guide I put together at the beginning of the year.
Page 1: Rainbow Coloring Sheet. The petal colors are listed on the bottom left of the rainbow while the corresponding component of the law is listed on each ray of the rainbow.
While this packet may be used to help any Daisy Girl Scout learn the Girl Scout Law, please note that page 4 is specific to our troop. Since the girls were in first grade at the time, I decided to list the petals on page 4 in smaller groups. This activity was intended to be fun (as well as educational), and I didn't want it to be too challenging.
Here is another fun idea...Make a Girl Scout Law puzzle. To make the puzzle, print the Law on a plain sheet of white cardstock. I recommend using a larger font (the larger the letters are, the bigger the puzzle pieces will be). Cut the paper to divide the Law into separate phrases. For example, "Considerate and Caring" could be one puzzle piece and "Use Resources Wisely" could be another puzzle piece. Mix up the pieces and have the girls work with a buddy to put the pieces in the correct order. They may need to look at a copy of the Law to complete the puzzle. As they practice, it should get easier. This can also be done with the Girl Scout Promise. We made each word a puzzle piece. The girls were challenged, but they had fun working together to place words in the correct order.
Now that the girls in our troop are entering second grade, we will recite the Girl Scout Law at the beginning of each meeting. I am hoping they memorize the Law by Christmas ble. Have fun with your Amazing Daisies! Thanks for reading.
