Hundreds of Girl Scout Daisies explore Denver Botanic Gardens

As many as 350 Girl Scout Daisies, parents, and volunteers gathered at Denver Botanic Gardens for Girl Scouts of Colorado’s annual Daisy Flower Garden Journey on Saturday, April 27 and Sunday, April 28, 2019! Daisies toured ten stations and completed fun gardening-themed activities to meet the colorful, global characters at the center of the Daisy Flower Garden, who teach them to live the Girl Scout Law. Activities included playing games, creating flower crowns, yoga, and making an upcycled craft from a Girl Scout cookie package.

Girl Scouts of Colorado is 32,000 strong—more than 22,000 girls and 10,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Ga., she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.

Our Daisies (Troop 65878) was trying to complete all of the petals before summer travels last year. We had four left at the end of school, so we decided to hold a workshop to complete them. One of our troop leaders hosted at her home, which also included walking to Cherry Creek nearby. The girls enjoyed working on activities in the open space and exploring the creek!

Petals earned:

  1. Respect myself and others
  2. Respect authority
  3. Be a sister to every Girl Scout
  4. Use resources wisely

Our Girl Scout Daisies made their first-ever Hometown Hero cookie delivery! They were able to donate over 100 packages of Girl Scout Cookies to the Fort Collins Rescue Mission. We are so lucky to have an organization to support our homeless neighbors. The girls really enjoyed giving back to the community.

Three Cheers for Animals with Girl Scout Daisies

Submitted by Nancy Muklow

Steamboat Springs

Girl Scout Daisies from Steamboat Springs have been learning more about animals with the “Three Cheers for Animals” Daisy Journey! Before our trip to the Routt County Humane Society, we decided to make something to keep the pets there comfortable. We asked them what might be helpful for their animal guests. We tied fuzzy fleece blankets into pet beds for the cats and dogs we are going to visit! We also made special no bake pumpkin and peanut butter dog treats to share with new friends at the shelter.

We are go-getters: We try new things like tying knots in our blankets. It’s harder than you think!

We are innovators: We work as a team to make sure everyone’s blanket is finished! Sometimes one knot is just as good as the two the pattern describes!

We are risk-takers: We dip our hands into the peanut butter batter to roll it into balls of goodness for our pet friends.

We are leaders: We know that taking good care of animals is a lot like taking good care of ourselves. We all deserve a wonderful life!

Daisy Petals and Journeys at the fire station

Steamboat Springs

Girl Scout Daisies from Steamboat Springs were treated to a visit with the Steamboat Springs Fire Department. We were working on our “Respect Authority” Petal AND parts of the “Three Cheers for Animals Daisy” Journey.

We learned that our firefighters eat dinner together, sleep for two nights at a time at the station, help people in car accidents, people that are hurt, put out fires, and help lots of animals!

We learned how to check our bedroom door with the back of our hand to feel if it is hot, if the fire alarm in our house goes off!

We learned about different trucks and all the tools they carry, and that firefighters wear special gear, so fire doesn’t burn them when they save people and pets in a fire.

We learned that firefighters can help pets of all different sizes if the pets have breathed in smoke.

We think you should be a go-getter to be a firefighter. It also helps to be innovative, a risk-taker, and a leader in this job.

Daisies earn cybersecurity patch

Submitted by Anna Coconati

Roxborough

Daisy Troop 68098 from Roxborough earned the cybersecurity patch! We learned about the parts of a computer. We also sent a message to our friends along a string. By the time we sent the message to each friend, we could see that our “computers” had many connections and the string looked like a web. Finally, we learned that it is important to protect our information, and we demonstrated this by wrapping layers of protection around a treasure. We got to decorate our treasure boxes, then protected them with layers of paper, tape, bubble wrap, and plastic bags.

By completing this activity, the girls will earn this special cybersecurity patch. Learn how to earn yours.
