Daisy: Zinni Considerate and Caring Petal

My adorable Daisy's are continuing on their petal earning quest. Next up for them is the Considerate and Caring petal. Zinni Geranium is the flower friend for the petal.

In order to earn the petal you need to complete 3 key items. I've listed those below along with one way to get it done. I may actually have a revised plan to tie in with Tom's World Sight Day, but I wanted a more generic one for you that would work at any time of year.


Beginning Craft (not petal related)

The girls will make a Zinni puppet (http://www.makingfriends.com/scouts/Flower-Friends-Puppets.htm). While we are reading the story, when Zinni speaks, I'll have them raise her up to encourage interaction and concentration on the story.

I wanted 4 puppets on a page, so I made this PDF: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5Z1ODpbzZtoTmR3eUtSSHBaQ1U

Supplies:
Printed Zinnia coloring page
straws (You could use popsicle sticks, but I have a plethora of straws, soo that's what I'm using)
tape (scotch or masking or duct tape... all work)

Petal Activity #1: Enjoy Zinni’s Story and talk about it

I feel this is self-explanatory. We are going to read the story from the petal booklet in the Girl's Guide. If you want to see an amazing YouTube project completed by a Girl Scout troop and listen to the story, check this out! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCEPt5vK2wY



Petal Activity #2: Come up with ideas of how to be like Zinni

Sit in groups of 3 and come up with ways to be considerate and caring, then share with the larger group.

I'll have the Cadettes work with the girls and find ways they could be considerate and caring. It may be things they heard in the story or they may come up with their own. Either way, you just want to get them thinking about how they can show they are considerate and caring to others.


Petal Activity #3: Practice being considerate and caring

This is a service project opportunity. Both troops report hours for the President's Volunteer Service Award and for our Service Unit's Hearts of Service program

The girls will make multiple tray cards for a nursing home. Just a little way to brighten someone's day and say we care about them.

Supplies:
Cardstock printed with message
die cut daisies foam stickers
happy face stickers




....and that's it... have I mentioned lately that the Daisy program is so fun and a nice change of pace from the more involved Cadette level... seriously loving the Daisies.
