Daisy: Sunny - Friendly & Helpful Petal

Since the Cadettes are mentoring the Daisy troop, they help plan the meetings. I have the bare bones ready for them, because the Daisy petals are pretty simple compared to the Cadette badges I'm used to. Don't get me wrong, they still take planning... but I welcome the simplicity!

So, I thought with this petal I'd let you see in to my world of planning and how I get it done. This is ready to go for our September meeting. It has the activities, the supplies list, and the pictures for samples.
