What do Girl Scout Daisies (grades K-1) Do?

Being a Girl Scout Daisy is a great way for girls who are just starting school to make friends and gain confidence. They have fun creative activities, learn about nature and science and explore the arts and their communities.

Girl Scout Daisies earn petals as they learn the values of Girl Scouting and explore their world through Girl Scout journeys. They also receive participation patches for attending fun events!

Daisy Meetings

A typical Daisy meeting consists of games, songs, crafts and more, including attending council programs. Daisies can earn petal patches to wear on their uniform tunic or vest. Each petal represents a part of the Girl Scout Law, like respect, honesty, helpfulness and caring.

They also have fun earning other badges and patches. Girls learn these concepts cooperatively, so they make new friends and try new things together. 

Daisy Troop Leaders work with girls to determine interests and decide on activities within the framework of the Girl Scout program. Parents are asked to support the leader by helping where needed, such as with transportation, group snacks, or family outings.

Daisy Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting

This all-in-one badge book and handbook is your guide to your Daisy adventure. It complements the Girl Scout Journeys by helping girls build skills to become successful and gain the confidence to do amazing things!

Journeys For Girl Scout Daisies

On every Leadership Journey, everything girls do—whether it's performing science experiments, creating art projects, cooking simple meals, or learning to protect the planet's water supply—is aimed at giving them the benefits of the Girl Scout "Keys to Leadership": Discover, Connect, Take Action.

All Daisies in a troop work together on the same journey, which is decided at the beginning of the Girl Scout year.

The Daisy Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting, the Daisy Journeys and all patches are available at our council's Service Centers and our online shop

What is the Daisy Uniform?

Girls can wear a Girl Scout Daisy Membership Pin as a sign of their belonging to the Girl Scout Movement. Daisies also love wearing a tunic or vest to proudly display their petals and patches! Each troop decides which components of the official uniform to wear to represent their Girl Scout troop.
