Steamboat Springs New First Grade Daisy Troop 55321 Celebrates!

Submitted by Cricket Hawkins

Mountain Communities

Steamboat Springs

The girls worked diligently on earning their Daisy flower petals through the Daisy Flower Garden Journey while learning the Girl Scout Promise and Law. They also earned the Watering Can Award, the Golden Honey Bee Award and the Amazing Daisy Award.

In early November, the girls started the Journey when they planted seeds in containers. Some took their plantings home and watered them to see what would happen. They also participated in a Take Action Project on the Soda Creek playground where, with the help of Ms. Cindy Gantick, they wrapped up the bushes and roses to keep them from suffering winter damage. During their final Journey Celebration, the girls demonstrated their knowledge of the 10 parts of the Girl Scout Law and decorated a fun Daisy frame for their Journey certificates. See some of the fun photos from the celebration.
