When you are a teacher, you have to make more with less. When I taught elementary school, I always spent money out-of-pocket for educational tools I wanted and needed. As a preschool teacher, I made crafts out of household things normally thrown away-paper-towel rolls, margarine tubs, newspaper, and other assorted items.
How to earn three Daisy petals with one Pringles can is a an easy craft-easy to make and easy on your dues budget. The petals earned are: orange (Responsible for what I say and do), rose (Make the world a better place) and green (Use resources wisely).
This craft can be adapted for Brownies and Juniors for something on a more age appropriate level.
