With Thanksgiving only a month away, this is a good time to think about having a Girl Scout Friendsgiving meeting with your troop. You can these earn up to three Daisy petals while during this meeting

Green Daisy Petal-Use Resources Wisely

Rose Daisy Petal-Make the World a Better Place

Yellow Daisy Petal-Friendly and Helpful

Because every Council has different Covid safety rules about where your can meet and the activities you can do, you might have to tweak some of the ideas here. 

Hosting a Girl Scout Friendsgiving

If you are planning to serve food, you will have to consider the following:
  • Does it need to be individually packaged?
  • Do girls in your troop have dietary restrictions due to allergies or religious beliefs?
  • What will you be serving? Bite sized items or a complete meal?
Whatever you decide to do food-wise, a SignUp Genius is my favorite way to get help, stay organized, and keep everyone in the loop. You can also ask for paper goods and beverages as well on your sign up.

Earn the Green Daisy Petal

In order to earn the Green Daisy petal, Use Resources Wisely, you can do a toilet paper tube turkey craft. There are many ways to create one. Here are some images and sites for you to use. 

Earn the Rose Daisy Petal

During your meeting, girls can make Thanksgiving cards to be distributed to a senior citizen facility.

Earn the Yellow Daisy Petal

If you are able to serve Thanksgiving fare, ask families to bring a traditional favorite food that is on their holiday table. Girls can help their parent prepare the dish (helpful) and then share it with the troop (friendly). The girls can also have a chance to speak and explain a bit about the dish that is being served.

Another way for your troop to earn the yellow Daisy petal is to make an edible cornicopia. Get enough supplies for them to make two-one to eat and one to share with someone in their family.

The girls can help clean up, which is helpful, and another way to earn the yellow petal.

What are you doing with your Daisy troop this November?
