Troop Program Idea: Daisy Investiture Ceremony


Need a few quick activities for your next troop meeting? The Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council's Troop Program Ideas, published in the months between the Golden Link, gives Daisy, Brownie and Junior troop leaders fun ideas for games, songs, crafts, snacks and ceremonies to use throughout the year!

Ceremonies help Girl Scouts mark special events throughout the year, such as bridging to another level, earning a National Leadership Journey award, or getting a Girl Scout pin.

How do you perform a Daisy Investiture Ceremony? 

What you'll need: For a Daisy Investiture Ceremony, you'll need a poster of daisy flower stem,  individual daisy petals with girls’ names on them and Girl Scout Daisy pins.

Place a poster on a wall or easel at a level the girls can reach. Put tape on the back of each petal.

Girls will arrange themselves around the poster facing the audience (parents & guests). Distribute the daisy petals to the girls. 

Leader: “You are about to become Daisy Girl Scouts. Together we will explore all the fun and adventure of Girl Scouting. Daisy Girl Scouts are named after the founder of Girl Scouting, Juliette Gordon Low. Her nickname was ‘Daisy’.” 

Assistant Leader: “As your name is called, come forward and place your petal on our Daisy poster.” [calls girls forward] 

Leader: “We have learned the Girl Scout promise and it’s meaning. Let us make the promise together now. ‘On my honor…’. You are now ready to receive your pin as a Daisy Girl Scout.” Pass out pins and give handshake. Leader: “Wear your pin proudly and always over your heart. Let us sing our Daisy Girl Scout Song. ‘I’m a Daisy Girl Scout…’. Now go join your parents.”
