For second year Daisy troop leaders, there is a sense of relief that you made it through the first year. Learning the ropes is not easy…it is a learn as you go volunteer position with varying degrees of help. While I was fortunate to have a great Service Unit to guide me, I know from many forum posts and Facebook groups that it is not always the case. That is one of the reasons I started this blog over seven years ago!
A reoccuring question that has been asked over and over again is What do I do with my second year Daisy troop if we did all the petals the first year?
I have the answer for you…and it does not include doing a Journey!

Even if you have new girls joining your troop who have not earned any petals yet, these activities can help them earn them while reinforcing their concepts with the girls who are in their second year. Young children need repetition, and the Girl Scout Law is woven throughout all the years a girl is involved with scouting.
