Our First Meeting

Well, we survived our first meeting last week. It was a bit of an eye opener for me, though. My last experience leading a troop was when I was in college, and I co-lead a junior's troop. Daisies are a whole other world. For starters, they need to be kept occupied at all times and you have to switch up the activities every 10-15 minutes to keep them from being bored.

The run down... our first meeting was an introduction to the year for the girls. We learned a song, introduced ourselves to each other, did a coloring activity relating to our introductions, and taught the girls about the friendship circle. On paper, it really doesn't sound like a lot, but with 15 little girls running around, it took up the entire time!

Our coloring activity... our awesome leader found some booklets that teachers often use at the begining of the school year, similar to this one. The girls were able to draw pictures of themselves and their families, things they like to do, their pets, favorite foods and more. Once they were done, we all sat in a circle and shared these things. It was also a great opportunity for everyone to learn each others names and learn a little bit about each other.

Stay tuned for a post about meeting two's activity (it's really cool!)
