Children love to make gifts for their families. If you are short on cash because you are a new troop, you can still make something and earn a Daisy petal for being Considerate and Caring.

Materials

Construction paper 
Markers
Scissors
Fillers for bag (read more below)


Girl Scout holiday gift idea-use snowflake cellophane bags and fill with candy. Have the girls make a card.



Snowman stickers for Girl Scout crafts


Box of 500 winter themed foam stickers for all kinds of Girl Scout crafts.

Blue filler paper for Girl Scout crafts



Fillers

Hot chocolate packets
Snowman candy
Gold coin candy
Mints
Snowflake favors (sold in bulk)

Have the girls make cards for their family using the craft materials listed above. By using winter themed items, you avoid conflicts with girls who celebrate different holidays.

When the cards are done, have a "filling station" guided by your co-leader and you. The girls each get a snowflake bag and add some confetti to the bottom. Then add any of the fillers you bought and tie with curling ribbon. If you want the girls to keep this as a surprise for their families, then you can also have them decorate white gift bags with the extra stickers you have and place the gift inside. Add festive tissue paper and you are done!

Enjoy planning this easy and fun meeting with your Daisy Scouts!
