Meeting Schedule

WHO ARE DAISIES??

Daisies are the youngest members of Girl Scouts. They are eager to explore the world around them and have fun along the way. The Daisy program is an introduction to the Girl Leadership Experience.

Daisies earn petal patches to wear on their uniform. Each petal represents a part of the Girl Scout Law, like respect, honesty, helpfulness and caring. They earn the center for learning the Girl Scout Promise. Girls learn these concepts cooperatively, so they make new friends and try new things together.


A typical Daisy meeting consists of games,
songs, crafts, stories and more.

As a Daisy, you might...

  • Make holiday cards for a senior center
  • Go to the movies
  • Have a Daisy pen-pal
  • Attend Council and community programs and meet other Daisies and older Girl Scouts
  • Participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Sale
  • Learn to travel in a group, on short trips
    in town
  • Create arts and crafts projects
  • Plan a picnic and make snacks
  • Work together to accomplish simple tasks
  • Make decisions through discussion and voting


During the 2 years as a Daisy, every girl should have the opportunity to …
LEARN THE GIRL SCOUT WAY, HELP MANAGE HER TROOP, LEARN AND ACHIEVE, EXPLORE THE OUTDOORS,
EXPRESS HER CREATIVITY, and SHARE IN THE GIRL SCOUT COMMUNITY.

Daisy Journey Program

It's Your World-Change It! Daisy girls will explore the natural world using their "growing skills" to make the world a better place. Along the way they will earn three awards as they complete the activities. These new Daisy journey will have 3 sessions. During these sessions the girls will investigate:
Global diversity (people, plants and language)
Botany, the environment and stewardship of the land
Girl Scout History and the values of the law

 

Simple Daisy Graces

Grace is a long standing Girl Scout tradition.  Here are a few simple graces sung to familiar children's songs to teach your girls for snack time.

 

 

ABC Grace
(tune "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star")

A  B  C  D  E F  G
Thank you Lord for Daisies and me!

               

Bless Our Food
(tune "Make New Friends")

Bless our food we share with friends today.
Grant us peace and Love along the way.

               

Let's Join Hands
(Sung to "Mary Had a Little Lamb")

Let's join hands and give our thanks,
Give our thanks, give our thanks,
Let's join hands and give our thanks,
Give our thanks to God.

 

 

It's Your Planet-Love It!
In this journey the flower friends take a cross-country road trip that invites Daisies to explore what sprouts up across the country as they learn how to protect what needs protecting! As Lupe and her flower friends zip along in Lupe’s petal-powered car, the Daisies witness some of the wonders and woes of nature and are on their way to earning their Clover (use resources wisely!), Blue Bucket and Firefly awards.

Games for Daisies

Fun Songs for Daisies
Daisy to Daisy
The girls pair off and face each other.
Then the leader calls out different body parts
(elbow, head, hand, etc.).
The girls have to touch each other -
elbow to elbow, head to head, and so on.

 

Daisy..Daisy..Scout  (played just like Duck Duck Goose!)

Daisy Clean Up Song
(to the tune of "Jingle Bells")

Leader: Daisy Scouts, Daisy Scouts.
Let's tidy up the room.
Daisy Scouts, Daisy Scouts.
Time to go home soon.

Girls: Daisy Scouts, Daisy Scouts,
We're picking up our things.
Daisy Scouts, Daisy Scouts,
Hear our voices sing.

Catch a Daisy
All of the girls get into a line, holding each other tightly around the waist.
The leader tells the first girl in the line to try to touch the last girl.
Then the leader tells the last girl to try to keep from getting touched.
The girls have to do this while staying in the line.
We change the leader after they are successful.

I'm a Little Daisy
(to the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot")

I'm a little Daisy dressed in Blue
(hands on each side of face then pick up skirt)
I am a Girl Scout you are too
(point to yourself then to someone else)
When I go to meetings I sing and Shout
(cup hands over mouth as if shouting)
I love being a Daisy Girl Scout
(point to heart then clap three times on Daisy Girl Scout)
Sleeping Beauty
Everyone must sit or lay down with eyes closed and
be as still and quiet as possible.
One person is Prince Charming.
The Prince checks all the Beauties to see who
is the quietest and stillest and pats that Beauty
on the shoulder. They trade places and the new
Prince tries to find a new Beauty to trade with.
A nice, QUIET game - great to wind them down
when they've gotten too wound up!
"D-A-I-S-Y" Song
Sung to the tune of "Bingo" - Sing it through 5 times each time replacing a letter with a clap.
There was a girl who had some fun
And Daisy was her name-o
D-A-I-S-Y, D-A-I-S-Y, D-A-I-S-Y,
and Daisy was her name-o.

Bridging to Brownies

 

A bridging ceremony is held when Daisy Girl Scouts "cross the bridge" to the next level - Brownie Girl Scouts.  It is one of the important milestones in Girl Scouting, and Daisy Girl Scouts should help as much as possible in its planning.  They decide which refreshments to serve, and offer ideas for the content of the ceremony. 
At the bridging ceremony, girls will receive the following insignia and awards:
Bridging to Brownies award patch
One-Year membership star
Daisy Ending Certificate
