Time to read 3 min

Curious what the Daisy Global Action Award is and how to earn?  Every Year GS offers the Global Action award for each level. You can see all the information on this on the GS website here

Today I want to share what we did as a troop for our girls earning the Global Action that could be incorporated into your activities no matter what the theme is for year. 

Daisy Global Action Award Ideas

What Does it Mean to Be Global?

Papier-mâché Luggage box

Purchase luggage boxes for girls to paint and design. You can get from Pat Catans or another craft store in your area. We had our girls paint and design their luggage box a few weeks before World Thinking Day and then during our Thinking Day event when we exchanged SWAPs the girls put their trinkets into the luggage box.

Schools Around the World

First we had the girls each draw a picture of their school. They can draw a certain place they like best or front of school, the classroom, the cafeteria, the playground, etc. After they have completed drawing their school, have each girl tell one thing they love about their school. Then share with girls some pictures and explain what schools are like in faraway schools. Ask girls what the difference from your own? What are some of the things you have at your school that other children may not have? Use this PDF file with images of Schools around the world. 

Another option is to use this great book that covers stories of real children from around the world by interviewing them.

Color Game

When the leader calls out a color, the players have to run and touch something that color. Last girl to touch something is out. Who is winner? Play few times if girls enjoy it.

Flying Fish

Around the world, especially in poor countries, many children do not have store-bought toys. But they still have fun by making their own things to play with. Invent a game or make a toy out of natural materials such as sticks. Try out your game/toy with your friends.

 How to make a flying fish

  1. First you will need to get color paper and cut a strip of paper.
  2. You will need to cut slits at either end
  3. Bend the strip of paper and slot ends together.
  4. Throw in the air and watch them spin as they come down.

Sending Postcards to the Future

In this activity, girls can send postcards to themselves in the year 2030, a decade from now. They’ll imagine what the world will be like and express their hopes and dreams for a better future. 

To get started:

  • Take a piece of paper and cut it in half to create a postcard-sized template.
  • Write or draw your vision for a sustainable and thriving world on one side.
  • Address it to yourself in 2030 and keep it safe!

This activity encourages girls to think about the impact they can make over time and fosters a sense of responsibility for global change.

Remember, the Daisy Global Action Award empowers girls to take meaningful steps toward a better world. Whether through postcards, learning, games, or creative projects, their actions matter in achieving the Global Goals!
