Last night, five of the 1st grade Daisies went to a “petal round-robin” with a Cadette troop. Since we are not going to earn all 10 Petals this year, I want to give the girls the opportunity to do so before they Bridge in June. I will admit, that it didn’t go exactly as planned (does anything ever?), but both levels of girls had fun.
Red – Courageous and Strong
Spring Green – Considerate and Caring
Purple – Respect Myself and Others
Green – Use Resources Wisely
The Cadettes taught the Daisies some ballet and karate moves. They tied the physical aspects of both into strength. Then they talked about how it takes courage to learn something new (and to teach something new!).
The Daisies assemble hygiene kits (to be donated to the VA hospital) and wrote “Thank You For Your Service” cards to go with each kit.
This Petal was started, but not completed. The Cadettes who helped the Daisies with the hygiene kits, tied them into using proper hygiene / nutrition is a way to respect oneself. We will finish up this Petal at our meeting on Thursday, tying it into our appropriate behavior / rules portion.
The Daisies played Earth Day Bingo (the winner winning….something. I thought the Cadette troop was going to supply the prize, and they thought I was), then talked about recycling and its importance. This Petal will also be finished up at our meeting on Thursday. The meat of our meeting will deal with worms/worm composting, which ties in nicely to using resources wisely. I think one of the Daisies has a little shoebox size worm composter. Hopefully she’ll bring it in. It will be a nice comparison to the one DH has.
