Garden Themed Ideas for Girl Scout Daisy Troop

I am starting a Girl Scout Daisy troop, and for their badges they will work with a garden theme. I am looking for ideas for garden crafts, stories, and other ideas for 5-6 year olds. Any help would be wonderful.

Hi Debbie, Welcome to Scouting. I wish you all the joy that being a leader has brought to me, And more . We made bird feeders out of recycled clean bleach jugs. With girls as young as yours you will want to pre cut an oval opening in jug. Small hole to insert twig perch. The Girls can decorate it. hang by fishing line tied to top of handle. Twigs glued to sloping part of top look good as a roof. They have foam flowers that are inexpensive that can be glued on. I have found that markers are too messy. You can also Google a lot of cheap nature crafts. best wishes, Barb

For Daisy's we made flowers by tracing our hands and cutting them out, taping them to a green pipe cleaner, gluing a large pom pom in the center and taping some leaves underneath.

We also made a hummingbird feeder out of a water bottle. I put wire through the bottom of the bottle to make a hanger, bent the bottle about an inch below where it starts to taper, and cut a small square hole in it just below the bend. The girls glued a flower (with a matching hole cut into it) on the hole. They then took a copy of the recipe for making sugar water to put into it.

We made a bird feeder using pine cones on which I had tied a hanging string. The girls put peanut butter on them and then sprinkled bird seed on it.

We took empty Internation Coffee tins that I had covered with contact paper. They decorated the tin and the lid with flowers and stickers. These were used to keep their Daisy pin's in.

I cut the centers of paper plates into triangle points and the girls decorated each point with artificial flowers and then we stapled ribbons on the plate for decoration to make a garden hat.

We made the flower pins from Oriental Trading.

We also made the foam flower tote bags from Oriental Trading.

To learn the law I got art foam to match the daisy colors and as the girls earned each petal they glued it to a cd. When they had earned them all they had a hanging mobile.
