First, there is this blog! I began writing it to help other leaders and I have hundreds of posts with resources for you. Just go to the “Search” box and type in what you want to find.
Second, I have a blog devoted solely to Daisy Girl Scouts! It is called Daisy Girl Scout Activities and you will find all kinds of information there just for you.
Third, there is my favorite forum, Girl Scout Moms at Babycenter.com There you will find practical advice from active leaders. You will be able to ask questions from other leaders and find the support that you need from those who have “been there” and those who are new like yourself.
Here are ideas on why and how to make a Kaper Chart.

Makingfriends.com is a fantastic site full of wonderful free resources for Daisy leaders. It was my go-to site when I was starting out.
Check out the sidebar on my blog to see pertinent articles for Daisy leaders!
There is also my book Daisy Girl Scout Leader:Tips for Running a Successful Troop. I wrote this as a guide to launch the new leader in greater detail. No Journeys are discussed, as I firmly believe that they should be saved for the second year if done at all.
If you have any tips for new Daisy Girl Scout leaders, please drop in a share!
