As a Daisy Girl Scout leader, I imagine that you are both excited and a bit nervous for this new adventure you are going on. I know I was!
Getting ready for your meeting should always be done ahead of time. Buying the necessary craft items, having the book you are reading on hand, having a finished craft project for the girls to see, and making sure your leader bag is packed and ready to go are just some of the things you need to be prepared.
Another thing you might want to consider is what you are wearing. The girls are in their adorable blue tunics or vests...should you have a uniform as well?
In the photo above, which was taken about 50 years ago, it was de rigueur for leaders to also be dressed in a Girl Scout uniform, complete with hat! (notice the gloves on two of the girls?)
The photo below has two leaders in full uniform as well. Can you imagine going to your meeting today after going to work or running around with the kids dressed like this?

I am a firm believer in looking good and being comfortable. That does not mean you have to wear sloppy clothes!
For younger girls, I think it would be fun to have the leaders wear some kind uniform that ties everyone together. It can be your "go to" outfit for your field trips and meetings.
Here are some very cook tee shirts that you can wear as your Daisy leader uniform! Many of these also com e in long sleeve for the winter months.
On Redbubble, you can order this zentangle Daisy on different styles of tee shirts in 20 different colors, including Daisy blue!

Do you wear some kind of uniform to your Daisy meetings? What is it and why did you choose it?
