Daisy Girl Scout Investiture #1     go to #2

  Supplies:   1. Daisy Girl Scout pins for new members.
                  2.  A cut-out of a daisy flower... yellow center, eight white petals. Back each piece with a roll of tape.
                  3.  Poster paper.

  LEADER:  You are about to become Daisy Girl Scouts. Together we will explore all the fun and adventure of Girl Scouting. Let's look at some of the things we might do.

  #1 G.S.:   (place daisy center on poster paper) The woman who started Girl Scouts was Juliette Gordon Low. Her nickname was "Daisy." We are named after her. Together we will learn more about Girl Scouting.

  LEADER:  In Girl Scouting, we have lots of fun things to learn.

  #2 G.S.:   (place first petal) We will learn how to be safe and healthy.

  #3 G.S.:   (place second petal) We will learn how and why things work.

  #4 G.S.:   (place third petal) We will sing, dance, make things and put on
plays.

  #5 G.S.:   (place forth petal) We will have fun outside and learn how to
care for our world.

  #6 G.S.:   (place fifth petal) We will learn how to be helpful people on
this earth.

  #7 G.S.:   (place sixth petal) The Girl Scout Promise tells us to help
others.

  #8 G.S.:   (place seventh petal) The Girl Scout Law tells us how to be
good to each other and our world.

  #9 G.S.:   (place eighth petal) Most important we will have fun.

  NOTE TO LEADERS: At this time, all girls make the Girl Scout sign and
repeat the Promise. Call each girl forward and place her membership pin on
her clothing upside down. Explain that the pin is upside down because she
should go home and do three good turns ... one for each part of the Promise.
When completed, her parent or guardian can turn the pin right side up. Note
that you hope to see all the pins turned over by the next meeting. (Discuss
the meaning of good turns with the girls prior to the ceremony).  Note:
putting the pins on upside down is an optional activity.
