Growing Daisies

My gardening today consists of sowing some Daisies...Girl Scout Daisies:-)

We had our most recent meeting on Tuesday. We were working on the Spring Green patch about consideration and caring. As a part of the lesson, we had a tea party. Check out the table:


I even folded the napkins like flowers:


How does this all fold into being considerate and caring? Well, setting a beautiful table is showing your guests that you care. Table manners is considerate and so is saying thank-you. That is why we did daisy thank-you notes for a craft. Each parent received a lovely note created by their child at the end of the meeting.

In addition to the party and the craft, we had the girls dress up in princess costumes. The girls loved it. I even got 129 thumbs up:-) How awesome is that?

You are amazing, and tea parties at any age are the best! I am so glad you shared this tradition and hopefully it will stick with them for a very long time!

Today's culture doesn't value manners the way it did in the past, but they are still important for children to learn if they are to be successful in life!
Great work!
My daughter would have loved it, and she is not quite three. :-)
She LOVES wearing dresses. Especially princess dresses. Unfortunately, all her little "friends" are boys right now, so the whole tea party idea would only work if it were a re-enactment of the Boston Tea Party of the 1700s!
