When you earn your final lavender Daisy petal, you will know how you are connected to Girl Scouts and Girl Guides around the world! You will also learn how you can be a sister to every Girl Scout you meet.
Vi Petal – Be a Sister to Every Girl Scout
1. Read Vi’s Story
2. Learn more about how Juliette Gordon Low wanted girls around the world to join together in sisterhood through Girl Scouting
3. Find ways to connect with other girl scouts
Read Vi’s Story:
How were the flowers from other countries the same as the Flower Friends from home?
How were they different?
Which country do you want to know more about? Why?
Juliette Gordon Low founded Girl Scouts of the USA in 1912. Her vision always was to have girl scouts of all different backgrounds, from all around the world, come together in sisterhood. Have an adult helper read to you more about who she was and her vision for Girls Scouts around the world. Here are a few places you can learn more about Juliette and her legacy.
Make a Daisy chain: Find out how many girls are in your troop. Print out enough copies of the template below so that you have one link for every girl in your troop, including you! On each link, write the name of one girl in your Daisy troop (don’t forget you!). Then write one thing that you like about each girl. Decorate the links however you like, then cut them out (have an adult help you if needed). Using glue or tape, secure the first link in a loop. Thread the next piece through the first loop before securing to make a chain of links. Hang up your chain to remind you how you are connected to Daisies all around the world!
Find ways to connect with other girl scouts: (choose 1 activity to complete)
If you are in a troop, have your troop leader assign girls to each other, so no one gets left out. If you are a single girl troop, reach out to your service unit for help connecting with other Daisy scouts.
1. Mail a hug (see picture below for instructions). Include a copy of this poem:
I miss you when you’re far away.
I’d love to see you every day.
But since I can’t come over to play,
I’m mailing you a hug today!
So although it be my quite a sight,
Wrap my arms around you tight!
Repeat daily to keep your smile bright,
Until we get to reunite!
2. Make a special card for a friend. Include a note about what makes them special.Mail or e-mail the card to them. (Alternatively, have the girls share their cards or pictures when you hold a virtual meeting.)
3. Make two bracelets. One should be purple and green for you to keep to remind you to be a sister to every girl scout. The second one you will make for a special Daisy friend and can be any color you want. Hold onto the bracelet until you see your friend again, or send it to her in the mail.
If you have other ideas, please send them to me and I will include them! 🙂
Now that you have met Vi print and color her picture! (optional)
You did it! You earned all your Daisy petals and finished learning about the Girl Scout Law! I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely, make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout.
