In my Teachers Pay Teachers store, Leadership Made Simple, I have just uploaded a free Girl Scout Daisy poem for an Investiture or Rededication ceremony.

The resource has two different pages:

  • A poem to read set against a field of daisies. This is great for scrapbooks.
  • A coloring page that can be used at a later time that features the poem.

You can find my free Girl Scout Daisy poem for investiture ceremonies here.

10 Free Girl Scout Daisy Investiture Resources

Here are free Girl Scout Daisy Investiture resources for leaders to help them plan their very first Girl Scout ceremony.

There are many different ceremonies that are a part of Girl Scouting, and one of them is the Investiture. Simply stated, this ceremony is to welcome girls to the sisterhood of Girl Scouting. Many new Daisy troops hold one a few weeks into the genesis of their troop. Older girls welcome new scouts to their troop by having a Rededication/Investiture ceremony.

This is  very simple and should not be something to cause a brand new leader any kinds of stress. You can do this towards the end of a meeting or at the very beginning, your choice. It is done with parents so they can see their daughters begin their Girl Scout career.

Hosting a Daisy Girl Scout Investiture ceremony should take place after meeting a few times simply because you do not know the girls all that well and they know very little, if anything, about being a Girl Scout. You get time to practice the Girl Scout Law and Girl Scout Promise and begin to gel as a unit. 

Before the ceremony, make sure you have purchased the Girl Scout Daisy and Girl Scout pins ahead of time. Girls should have purchased a yellow tab for this.


During the meeting before your ceremony, the girls can make a simple invitation.

Materials
  • Blue Construction paper
  • Printed Daisy flower coloring page or Daisy stickers that fit on the front of the card
  • Ceremony details printed out to fit on the inside of the card
  • Glue
  • Crayons
  • Scissors
Have the girls color in the Daisy, cut it out and glue it to the front of the blue construction paper. On the inside, have them glue the details that you have printed out. 

For example, you can write:
