Daisy Journey Tip #2 – Attending council events is a great way to enhance or supplement the Journey activities you are doing during troop meetings. Here are a few events and how they tie to the Daisy Journeys. To read more about these events and to register go to: http://www.girlscoutsofcolorado.org/activities
Daisy Garden Journey – The name says it all! Girls will work toward the first two awards of the “Welcome to the Daisy Flower Garden” Journey at this event.
Cool Science & Rocks and Roles, Women on the Ridge – The science activities girls will do with great adult volunteers will link to the Between Earth and Sky Journey by providing girls with role models (see page 7 of the Adult Guide).
Zoo Day at Cheynne Mountain Zoo – Any chance girls have to be around animals will be a great supplement to the “3 Cheers for Animals” Journey.
Move It! Sports Sampler & Sports Extravaganza – Healthy living is a key component to being a good leader. By taking part in sports, girls are taking care of themselves – a great tie in to the “3 Cheers for Animals” Journey.
Live Healthy, Lead Healthy Expo – This event will provide girls with an opportunity to learn all about healthy lifestyles. Use the Healthy Habit Supplement books along with the “Between Earth and Sky Journey” > http://girlscouts.org/program/journeys/booklets/. By attending this event, girls (and their families) will learn to have a more healthy and balanced lifestyle.
Day of the Dead “Dia de los Muertos” – This event will celebrate the traditional Mexican holiday. Spending time with Girl Scout friends and family, celebrating, and honoring the Girl Scout founder is a great tie to the “Welcome to the Daisy Flower Garden” Journey.
We Care for Animal Care – Daisies will work toward the “Bird Bath Award” from the “3 Cheers for Animals” Journey.
