Hi. I am a Brownie Leader. I'm not all that Familiar with Daisys. The phrase "Be a friend to every Girl Scout" brings to mind a craft. making swap pins. Is there another Daisy troop or brownie troop that you could swap pins with? Or I guesse they could justswap with each other. They could make more than one, since they may not want to part with them. makingfriends.com has a lot of swap pins as well as tons of other projects. or you can look on the girlscout web sites too. hope this helps. have fun

hi,
i am a girl scout leader. i started out being a brownie leader cause my daughter missed out on the daisey's cause no one steped up and became a leader.

ihave never heard of 4 year olds starting daiseys. daiseys start out in kindergarten. so if your niece is in kindergarten maybe she is in daiseys. but this in in arkansas they may have differant rules from place to place. i have been involved with girl scouts for 5 years.

ihope you can get your family differances worked out. i hate that you can not have fun with your nieces.

take care

4-year old Daisies

Yes, in our area they announced that they were allowing 4-year-olds to join Daisy Scouts. I am a junior leader, so I am not sure, but I guess they would then do Daisy for two years. I believe this came about after GS started doing special short programs with HeadStart 4-year-olds. I was not really happy with the announcement as we seem to have a hard enough time finding leaders for Daisys (not to mention other age groups) and the Daisy groups seem to be almost overcrowded. But I think GS was hoping to also get more parents involved earlier (when they and their kids are younger and maybe have more energy?)

Since you have an older troop helping with the Daisys, maybe they could make a picture frame craft. The big girls could help the little ones make frames out of craft foam or popsicle sticks and decorate them. Then you could take a Polaroid picture of the Daisys with their older "sister scout" and the girls can frame the picture.

I don't have a good idea for a game, but anything involving partners or teamwork would be appropriate.

Have fun!

Be a Sister idea

I just found a page I had pulled from the GS leader magazine that tells ideas for each Daisy petal. For the "Be a Sister" one it suggests pairing off girls with a friend (such as one of your juniors) to get acquainted. It says "Then, girls took the letters of their friends' names and thought up words beginning with the letters to describe their friends. The girls worked together on each others names." I guess in order to describe each other the pairs would have to get acquainted and talk about their likes and dislikes, etc.

Anyway, that's the idea from GS leader mag!
