Daisy Troop 2209

January Update

Hi Troop 2209 Parents!

Today, we worked on a part of the Girl Scout Law: Considerate and Caring and they earned the Spring green petal (the light green petal). Our host was Aerian Ford--thank you, Aerian!

Our girls:
  • Reviewed the Girl Scout Promise and Law (see below)
  • Heard the Zinni story and discussed ways to be considerate and caring
  • Made Valentine's Day cards for Horizon Bay residents who might not otherwise receive cards
  • Discussed cookie sales and ideas for what our goal should be
  • Sang two songs: "I'm a Girl Scout Daisy" and "I've Got Something in my Pocket"
  • Brainstormed ideas for the next meeting, "Make the World a Better Place."

Next meeting, Tuesday, February 18th (hosted by Marylou Bailey): Make the World a Better Place

-Leah Carden (813) 230-5515 and Susan Heine (323) 697-5496

Cookies! We are now in full pre-order taking mode.

We officially kicked off our first cookie season. Pre-orders are being taken from now until Jan 26th. Cookies will be delivered to our troop Feb 14-16 and we will have a pick up at our next meeting or just prior.

The Girl Scouts of West Central Florida just sent out an email with more cookie information. Follow this link if you didn't receive it: click here.

Today, we asked the girls about their goal for selling cookies. Here is a list of things they'd like to use their cookie money for (they earn $.65 per box). Here is a partial list:
  • Sleep over pillow fight party...in PJs
  • Pay bills/membership dues (yes, a child said pay bills!)
  • Get fingernails painted
  • Buy supplies like paint brushes, sticker books and paper
  • Go swimming--a swim party...and dress up like mermaids
  • Go to Disney World (this is where we got to put cookie sales into perspective: that is about 300 boxes sold per girl!)
  • Laser tag
  • See the Belle movie
  • A Pinata!

Iron on the Light Green Petal Patch: Zinni

Our girls learned about what it means to be considerate and caring and they earned the light green petal. Please iron this petal on before the next meeting.

I'm a Girl Scout Daisy

I’m a Girl Scout Daisy, Take a look at me.
I’m a Girl Scout Daisy, happy as can be.
We’re having fun and sharing, each and every day.
I’m a Girl Scout Daisy, Hip Hip, Hurray!

I’m a Girl Scout Daisy, take a look at me.

I’m a Girl Scout Daisy, Hip, Hip, Hurray!

The Girl Scout Promise and Law

The Girl Scout Promise

On my honor, I will try:

To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

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.
