Daisy Flower Garden Journey at the Denver Botanic Garden

Girl Scouts of Colorado hosted more than 250  Girl Scout Daisies from the Front Range at our annual Daisy Flower Garden Journey at the Denver Botanic Gardens recently. Girl Scouts learned about the Girl Scout Promise and Law through fun garden-themed activities! Girls visited ten tables where they heard important stories, learned Yoga, practiced the Girl Scout Promise and Law, created crafts to share with others, and planted a flower.

Daisies made Best Friends SWAPs to share. Girls also learned ways to be considerate and caring and made a thumbprint card to give to someone special.

Daisies also learned about being courageous and strong while practicing fun animal pose Yoga. Older Girl Scouts did a great job leading activities! Our Daisies had fun learning from them and our older girls were great role models for our younger girls!

Girl Scouts also learned about how to be responsible for they say and do by listening to Mari the Marigold’s story and hearing how Mari kept her promises. There was also time for extra fun! Girl Scouts enjoyed the garden and the beautiful surroundings, too. We lucked out with great weather and the garden had some beautiful spring blooms!

A BIG Thank you goes to our wonderful volunteers who made this great event possible. Girl Scouts and adults from these troops where a huge help!

Our new Daisy troop is just beginning to learn the Girl Scout Law. At our last meeting, we met Lupe the Lupine and learned about what it means to be honest and fair. Then, we practiced being fair by sharing the special pink star beads when making friendship bracelets! It just takes simple lessons to teach our Daisies how to put the Girl Scout Law into practice.

On Thursday, May 5, 2016 Girl Scout Troop 1737 learned how to fence from Olympic fencer Elaine Cheris. The troop arrived at the Cheyenne Fencing Society prepared for an exciting evening and they were not disappointed. After Ms. Cheris gave the girls a brief introduction to the sport of fencing, she taught Rebecca , a Junior level Girl Scout, the basics of being a fencing referree and Rebecca refereed a demonstration by two student fencers. After the demonstration, the Juniors, Brownies, and Daisies all had the opportunity to put on fencing jackets and duel with their Girl Scout sisters.

Daisy troop makes memories during overnight adventure

Over the weekend of April 15 and 16, Daisy Troop 1224 enjoyed their first overnight in preparation for their cabin and tent camping trips this summer. The Daisy Girl Scouts , ages 6 and 7, enjoyed making their own s’mores from a gourmet menu, learning to set up tents, performing skits, and signing personalized pillow cases as a momento before settling into their tents and giggling their way to sleep. They woke up sleepy-eyed, but still full of energy, ready for breakfast burritos and fresh fruit smoothies. They designed their own friendship bracelets before heading home in several inches of snow and sleet. Everyone had a great time making memories, laughing together and bonding as a troop. They’re ready for their  summer camping trips!

Daisy Troop 65526 is excited to announce the completion of their first service project! The girls chose to help make the world a better place by providing homeless children in the Arvada community with a sense of security and warmth, as well as education and entertainment. The girls worked with community partners and another national non-profit organization to make 15 Project Night Night bags for children under the age of 12. Each bag contained a stuffed animal, blanket, book, two toothbrushes, and mini pillow that was handmade by each girl. Each girl also made a personalized card to put in the bag she created. The girls enjoyed presenting the Arvada Police Department with the bags. Officers will be distributing the bags to homeless children in our local area over the next month.
