Having a Kaper Chart is one thing that leaders use to assign jobs to girls and begin their journey to owning their meetings. By the time girls are Cadettes, they should not just be selecting which badges they wish to earn, but also leading their troopmates at the meeting in which they are earning it.
But don't worry...your little Daisy Scouts are not there yet!

Young children love to help and take turns doing different jobs. In this blog post, I discussed the benefits of having a Kaper Chart and what kinds of jobs you can assign each girl.
Last year, I shared with leaders a list of resources that can be used for Kaper Charts. You can read it here.
Your co-leader and you will have to decide how often to rotate jobs. There is no right or wrong way to do it.
Materials to Make a Kaper Chart
You do not have to get all Pinteresty with this. A few simple flourishes on white posterboard on a trifold is a good base to get started.
One of the easiest and versatile things to use are library pockets. These are a staple item for teachers since they are so functional. All you need is for each girl to decorate an index card that has her name on it and that is her name card for the kaper chart for the year.
Another fun accent that is inexpensive and will save you time are another teacher staple, bulletin board letters.
You have your letters and troop numbers, you might want to add a few personal accents.
First, there are flower cut outs. The girls can write their name on these and you can place them around the border of the chart.
These retro looking cutouts can also be laid out around the border to make it more colorful. You can write each girls name on it as well.
These blank daisy shaped cut outs can be used for many things, including your troop Kaper Chart.
These are just a few things you can use for your Girl Scout Daisy Kaper Chart.
