Join Troop 720 as they run another TWO VIRTUAL “3 Cheers for Animals” Journey in a Day events! This is totally ran and planned by older girls. They did it three times in-person last school year and just completed their first Zoom session this last weekend. They had a lot of great feedback from the girls who attended.

If you have a Daisy (kindergartner/first grader), this event is for you! They have two sessions available for your girl or Girl Scout to register for!

March 21, 2021 from 1 – 4 p.m. https://3-cheers-for-animals-daisy-journey-in-a-day-copy.cheddarup.com

April 11, 2021 from 1-4 p.m. https://3-cheers-for-animals-daisy-journey-in-a-day-copy-11004.cheddarup.com

These will be the last dates ran this school year.

Daisy Space Science Explorer badge: Step Three of Three

When Daisies earn the Space Science Explorer badge, they’ll have explored and observed the Sun, Moon, and stars.

Time to meet the last thing in our sky, the stars! Did you know that the Sun is the closest star to us? Most of the stars in the sky are very far away, trillions of miles away!

Step One: Explore the Sun

Step Two: Observe the Moon

Step Three: Meet the Stars

Watch this video to learn how to make your own constellation. Constellations are patterns in the stars that people see shapes in. Some of the most seen are Ursa Major (aka the Big Dipper or the Great Bear) and Orion’s Belt. You can make your own constellation, starting with your hand. Place stars at the tips of your fingers, palm, and wrist. Connect the stars in a pattern that makes sense to you, and then name your new start pattern!

Daisy Space Science Explorer badge: Step Two of Three

When Daisies earn the Space Science Explorer badge, they’ll have explored and observed the Sun, Moon, and stars.

Did you know the moon doesn’t disappear during the day? It’s still in the sky, but it’s harder to spot among all of clouds and the sky. Have you noticed that the moon changes shapes from night to night?

Step One: Explore the Sun

Step Two: Observe the Moon

Watch this video to learn how to create a pretend telescope. A telescope helps scientists observe far way things, like the Moon or the stars. Make a pretend telescope by rolling up a piece of construction paper and taping it into a tube shape. Decorate it with the items you think you’ll see with it at night, like the stars, the Moon, etc. With an adult, go outside at night and look up to the sky. What do you see? Write it down or draw it!

Exploring My World

Castle Rock

I am six-years-old and in my second year as a Daisy. I just moved with my family to Colorado, and because of the pandemic, it has been a little challenging to get to know our new area. But, the Girl Scouts Love the Outdoors Challenge has been so much fun and helped us find safe activities to do as we explore our new state.

This summer, I have been hiking and camping in the mountains, drawing the view from our deck, watching the sunrise, boating, learning how to cast a fishing pole, planting flowers at home, and many other fun outdoor activities, while learning to respect and protect the environment! I am working to conquer my fear of live fish (when fishing in the lake), and no longer scream when someone catches one. Most recently, I hiked four miles in the Rockies (more than 10,000-feet elevation). I learned about the thinner air at higher elevations, the importance of hydration while hiking, and how to “Leave No Trace” while in nature.

Steamboat Springs

Daisy Club visited Johnny B. Goods Diner in Steamboat Springs. It was not only a special treat to end our session of the After School Action Daisy Troop, it was a fun way to explore money, coins, bills, budgets, and what we can buy with our cash.

Girls learned about coins, how they add up, and we talked about ways to spend them. AND we talked about things to do that DON’T cost money. We “budgeted” for our milkshake outing and the girls got to pick out a milkshake to share with their buddy!

These go-getters and risk-taker Daisy girls tried a milkshake that was new to them, a flavor they had never tried!

Daisy Troop 77918 turns plastic bags into restored benches at the Callahan House

By the City of Longmont

A group of 13 girls from the Longmont Daisy Troop 77918 teamed up with local retailer, Budget Home Supply, to host a plastic bag drive, turning plastic bags into recycled composite decking materials to restore two benches for The City of Longmont’s Callahan House. The drive served as an opportunity for the girls to reach out to the community and learn about involvement, service, and charity.

Sponsored by Budget Home Supply, the girls’ plastic bag collections were sent to AZEK Building Products, where they were transformed into composite decking material, which is made up of 90 – 95% plastic film. The material was brought to the Callahan House where the Daisy troop worked with a local contractor Big Sky Builders, who also donated time to the project, on the restoration of the benches. They worked together to replace the worn boards on the existing benches with the new composite material, restoring the benches to a like-new condition.  

On November 2, 2019 the girls and their troop leaders held a ribbon cutting ceremony and tea party at the Callahan House to celebrate their hard work and the success of the project.

The City would like to thank the girls for all of their hard work and dedication on this project. The benches look great and will be appreciated by many visiting the Callahan House for years to come!

Built in 1892, Longmont’s Historic Callahan House and Garden is a historically designated home given to the City of Longmont in 1938 by honest and skillful merchants, Alice and Thomas Callahan. Host to several special events open to the community yearly, the House is also available to rent for private events.

Stop by The Callahan Holiday Open House on Friday, December 6 from 4 to 7 p.m. for a tour of the historic house and visit with Santa! This event is open to the public and admission is free. Parents, bring your own cameras to capture the moments!
