Next Year's prep, take 1!

As you already know, I've put Flat Juliette into the works as a tool for our first meeting next year. That's only one meeting, which leaves me with a LOT of work left to do. This year we worked out of 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers For Animals! And the Daisy Guide book. Our Daisy troop next year will have a lot of new girls since most of this year's troop are bridging to Brownies. I have a lot of things to keep in mind!

Challenge number 1- attempting to plan activities around the petals, but ones that are different from this year's activities

Challenge number 2- incorporating in the journey books Welcome to the Daisy Flower Garden and Between the Earth and Sky

Challenge number 3- planning new/different field trips

Challenge number 4- keeping our budget as low as possible by incorporating more recycled crafts into our meeting plans

Challenge number 5- collecting donations of said recycled materials

Challenge number 6- considering a "journey day" where our new Daisies can have the opportunity to work on 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers For Animals! Which in turn will earn them the Journey Summit pin

Challenge number 7- organizing a massive SWAP project

Challenge number 8- finding a new co-leader

Challenge number 9- planning projects that can turn into future projects (ie: turning the SWAP project in to pen pals, and turning a school flower garden into an on going thing)

Challenge number 10- incorporating more of the new Girl Scout mantras into our "lesson" planning

It's a lot to digest and comprehend, especially when dealing with a bunch of 6 year olds!  Thankfully, I have plenty of time to work on this.

  1. Good morning ! I am a new Troop Leader, our troop consist of mostly Daisies and a few Brownies. Luckily my co-leader will take the Helm for the Brownies.

    I will be starting the 3 cheers for animals Journey in the fall. I would love to complete all 3 journeys by this time next year (wish me luck).

    We started in Feburary and will complete our petals by last school troop meeting.

    Depending on newbees in the Fall I will need to incorpate pedals into the Journey meetings as well.

    Let me know if someone to network with. I know i will.
