As a nation, we have had a challenging two years. Girl Scout troops across the nation, like most schools, went to virtual learning last year. During last spring, we were finally permitted to have in person meetings.

And now, as the Covid-19 numbers rise again, many Councils are telling leaders to return to the virtual format if they want to be with their troop.

10 Virtual Girl Scout Daisy Petal Meetings


For first year Daisy leaders, this can be daunting, as they do not have the experience from last year to rely on. Add on the challenge of cookie sales, if they chose to do them, and planning virtual meetings is an added stressor.

Since we do not know how long we will be unable to meet in person, I have put together a product that has 10 Virtual Girl Scout Daisy meetings.

With the exception of the orange Daisy petal, which is new, the others are a part of the other Daisy petal products that I have created. Everything you need is included, just let the girls know what they need and your planning is done.

If you have been a Girl Scout leader for any length of time, then you are familiar with the three Girl Scout holidays that are celebrated. On February 22nd of each year, scouts around the world celebrate World Thinking Day.

This scouting year, leaders have another opportunity to celebrate on February 22nd…it is Twos Day!

Twos Day Activities


What is Twos Day?

On Tuesday, February 22, 2022, the date written numerically is 2/22/22.

If you have a Girl Scout meeting around that time, you can celebrate this once in a lifetime numerical palindrome.

(For those of you not able to meet around that date, you can celebrate 2/2/22, which falls on a Wednesday).

10 Fun Twos Day Activities

In my Teachers Pay Teachers store, I just created a new product to help both teachers and leaders celebrate Twos Day. For leaders, it is cookie season, and life is busy and can be a bit chaotic with sales. Planning a meeting is just one more thing for you to do, and you may not have the time or energy to create something. You may also want to do something that is not related to Girl Scout cookies.

In this resource, there are crafts, games, movement and community service activities. You can do them in person or virtually. If you are doing this virtually, make sure to leave ample time for families to pick up supplies, whether from you or from the store.

This resource is for kindergarten through fifth grade, Daisies through Juniors.

You can find it here on Teachers Pay Teachers.

Please be sure to follow me on TpT so you can receive updates as to when new products are posted.

Are you planning to celebrate Twos Day? If so, what are you doing?

Girl Scout Barbie I Can Be Anything Do Everything Patch is Available

One of the most popular fun patches for Daisies and Brownies is the Girl Scout Barbie Be Anything, Do Everything patch. Now this rare item is available to leaders!

The Girl Scout Barbie "I Can Be..." Program came out in 2013. There was a booklet and a patch that Daisies and Brownies could earn.

While long discontinued, the program remains a favorite for leaders to do with their younger girls. This is a fun program to do with your girls during the busy cookie season, as everything has been laid out for you to do in the booklet.

It is a rare Council shop that still has some in their storage rooms. However, the PDF version of the Barbie I Can Be Anything, Do Everything program is available for free online.

You do not have to run off every page. Print one copy of what you need and then take it to Staples or OfficeMax to run off so you save on your own personal ink. Give your receipt to your treasurer so you can be reimbursed.

Now that leaves finding the patches.

You can find them in my Etsy Shop.

If you want a better price per badge, send an email to myib2010@hotmail.com and let me know how many you need.
