The Mari, Responsible for What I Say and Do Daisy petal is the orange petal usually at the 5:00 position on Daisy flower.

We had another Brownie Troop came to our meeting to show us how Girl Scouts are responsible for what they say and do. This helped us with a petal, and also helped them work on a Bridging requirement.

For the badges released in 2011, scouts must complete all of the activities listed to earn the badge.

Activity #1: Enjoy the Story and Talk about ItEdit

Activity #2: Act Out Ways to be ResponsibleEdit

  • Reading "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" and talking about the consequences of what you say.
  • Color a picture of a kid, then have them crumple them up. As they try to smooth them out, talk about how actions have consequences you can't take back -- i.e. you can smooth out the picture entirely without still leaving some marks.
  • Squeezing mini tubes of toothpaste out, and talking about how we can't get the toothpaste back in the tube - though that one could create a big mess and wastes the toothpaste.

Activity #3: Practice Being Responsible for What I Say and DoEdit

  • Trace their hands on a piece of paper and come up with 5 things they can be responsible for at home: making their bed, feeding a pet, taking out the trash/recycling, clearing the dinner table, etc. They write one responsibility on each finger. Then try to report back at the last meeting to see how they have met their responsibilities.
