Girl Scouts - Daisy - Meeting #2 "Amazing Daisy" Promise Center

For our second meeting, we focused on learning the Girl Scout Promise! It encompasses all that Girl Scouts stands for and is a great starting point. We say the promise at the start of each meeting. It's also easy for the girls to learn, especially compared to the Law.

Send Homework - Sheet (link at end), Journey chapters - 

We actually ran out of time while the girls were working on the Promise Books! Last year, we did several crafts and the girls finished with 20 minutes to spare. So this year, I decided to have more structure and activities. I was honestly surprised at how long it took them to complete the Promise Flower craft. My goal is to have them end on working on their coloring book. That way they are quietly working while I can go over things with the parents at the end of the meetings. At this meeting, it was a bit chaotic. I had some girls still working on their Promise Flower and others working on the Promise Book. That meant I had to send the coloring book home, along with the homework. 

Speaking of homework. We are working on our first Journey! The goal is to complete all three and earn the Journey Summit Award! Last year, we worked on a Journey during meeting time and the girls were really bored! It was too much reading, and honestly, took too many meetings to complete. This year, I'm sending home chapters and the girls have all week to read them. This way we are able to devote the meetings to the petals and other fun stuff, while still completing the Journeys. We are currently working on "Welcome To The Daisy Flower Garden". 

I hope that soon we will have the timing worked out for the meetings. I want to be able to complete everything without the girls feeling rushed.
