This super cute little idea came from one of our leaders. Our Daisies were learning how to make new friends and it was their first official meeting, so she found an idea from tracyblogspot and decided to do something similar.
First, she made little cards that said, Make new friends, but keep the old – One is silver and the other’s gold. These lyrics are from the old scout song, Make New Friends. Next, she gave each of the girls small pieces of gold and silver pipe cleaners to make little silver and gold rings. After punching two holes in the card, she used another small piece of a pipe cleaner to teach the girls how to attach their rings. Finally, on the back (my favorite part), she had the girls write the names of their old Daisy friends and their new Daisy friends.
The girls had so much fun making new friends, asking each other to spell their name, and singing the song. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next week.
