Daisy Meeting 11: Be a Sister to Every Girl Scout

This meeting was a special one.  When the girls finish first grade, they are ready to become a Brownie.  Girl Scouts calls this "bridging".  In order to Bridge to Brownies and earn the award you need to complete two bridging steps.

Step 2:  Look Ahead
In this step the current Daisies need to get together with a Brownie Troop to learn about what it is like to be a Brownie and what some of the fun and experiences they will have as Brownies.

I reached out to a friend of mine who is a leader for a Brownie Troop and we invited them to our meeting.

We thought this would also be a perfect meeting to work on the Be a Sister to Every Girl Scout petal.

We also worked the Global Action Award into this meeting by having a food drive for the local Food Pantry.

Ask the girls if they talked to their families about reducing trash at home.

Say the Girl Scout Promise.

Sing “Make New Friends” or ask for requests.

In the Girl Scout Daisy Circle, have both troops share their troop rules and kapers and talk
about what is the same and different.

“Today we are going to learn about what it means to be a sister to every Girl Scout and
learn about Global Action."

Ask the older Girl Scouts to buddy up with Daisies and read “Vi’s Story” and talk about it
using the questions in the Girl’s Guide.

Ask the older Girl Scouts to share a favorite activity with the Daisies.

For the Global Action activity talk to the girls about hunger.  Have them think of a time when they were very hungry.  How did it make them feel?  Perhaps tired or cranky?  How did they feel once they ate and were no longer hungry?  What do they think are reasons why some people around the world don't have enough to eat?  Talk about the local Food Pantry and how they help the community.  Collect food for our food drive.

Get in the Daisy Circle and with the help of the older Girl Scouts say the entire Girl Scout

Remind girls of kapers and work together to leave the site better than you found it
