When your Daisy girls earn the safety pin you want them to really understand personal safety and fire safety and be able to share it with others.
Today I want to share a few ideas to get you started.
Safety Activity Booklet
In this activity booklet you will teach your girls about their personal safety, choking safety, and fire safety. Using this booklet you will do activities and games that will help your girls remember their address, phone number, what to do when someone is choking, and what to do in a fire emergency. When the girls have completed this 6 page booklet they will understand all the safety concepts and be able to share what they learned with others. Get Your Safety Activity Booklet Now!
Create Your Own Fire
Girls love to get messy, so I purchased marbles, and had 5 x 7 paper for each girl . First I printed fireman paper dolls that I got from makingfriends.com which are free printables. I printed the black and white so the girls could color their own fireman any color they wanted. After the girls color the paper dolls set them aside. Then give each girl a 5×7 piece of paper, three marbles, and large paper plate with three colors Orange, Red and Yellow paint. Explain to girls they are going to create their own fire, by dipping the marble into the color paint and rolling across paper. Then choose the next color and roll on paper, and lastly the last color. Set it aside and let dry. When dry the girls will glue their paper fire man onto paper and slide into their picture frames that I purchased from pat catans
After completing Fire Safety portion of award, give each girl a fire safety temporary tattoo. Here is a great set with a variety of options: Fireman Fire Safety Temporary Tattoos For Kids with 72 Pieces
Stranger Danger Whistle

Garden Fairy Adventure Kit
A family of 10 garden fairies are on a mission to teach your girls good values to live by. Your girls will go on a garden adventure helping their fairy friends plant their flowers, water their gardens, and learn how to put their values into action one activity at a time. Everything is planned for you, just gather the supplies and enjoy running your meeting. Learn more and get yours today.
Enjoy every minute being a leader and continue to inspire your girls!
Thanks for this blog post! I came across it while also trying to figure out how to teach the Safety pin. Love the ideas!! Thank you, my co-leader and I are grateful!
These are great ideas! I also came across this while searching safety for my troop.Thank you for paying it forward!
This was super helpful, thank you!!
Your welcome glad that it helped 🙂
This is really great but do you know where there may be safety patches that are a little more affordable than the safety pins ($4 ea)? Thanks for sharing your experience!
Hi I agree that price is a bit much. You could do something like a fun patch for fire portion of award and fun patch for home safety part of award. Then they get two for way less then price of one pin and I think they would probably remember what it was for more then cross pin. Here are a few examples.
I am just now starting a daisy troop. We have our first speaker coming to a meeting. A safety instructor at our local cpr and safety school. Do we decide what the girls do to earn their patches and pins or are their specific things they have to do?
Hi Sarah. The books give you ideas of what you should learn while earning badge/petal. You can follow exactly what is there or change and or add to what they suggest. I have found many of the requirements if followed exactly could be very boring for your girls. So change it up a bit add games, songs, crafts to drive the topic home. They will be learning while having fun.
