Girl Scout Daisy writing  a thank you letter to a first responder

Daisies (Grades K-1)

Hello Troop Leaders and Girls!

These videos and activities are designed to give you ideas for adapting badge steps in a virtual environment. Watch the videos, read the instructions, and add any necessary adaptations to meet your troop’s needs. We don’t recommend playing the videos at troop meetings—but they’re great if a girl is doing a badge step on her own or had to miss a session!

Girl Scout Daisies is the first level in Girl Scouts and is open to girls in grades K-1.


Outdoor Activities

Special Event: Daisy Eco Learner

Do you love the feel of the bright sun on your face? The sweet smell of a flower? The sounds of birds singing? Or the fun of walking on a trail? Nature gives you many gifts! Learn some ways you can give back by protecting nature. You will be prepared to protect nature before you go outside, keep living things safe when you walk in nature, and you'll learn how to protect nature from trash! 

This program is for girls in grades K and 1 and will put girls on the path to finishing the Daisy Eco Learner badge!  The recording is free to watch but requires sign-in. This event was hosted by Girl Scouts Dakota Horizons.
