Earn the Daisy Safety Award with ease with these activities for leaders

This post may contain affiliate links and this site is not connected with, affiliated with, approved by, endorsed by The Girl Scouts of the USA or the Frontier Girls. Ideas are my own and I share to help you run your troops with ease.

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

My name is Jodi Carlson, I am a mom, wife, & web designer and come with 25 years of GS experience. I am now sharing my experiences and helping other Girl leaders be great and successful and shape today’s girls to be the leaders of tomorrow. I was blessed with a Son in March of 2015 and stepped down as a full time girl leader, but missed planning and volunteering, so I decided after 25 years I have so many ideas to inspire girls and help leaders so I choose to build this blog and it has grown into a resource beyond GS, I am reaching girl leaders in many organizations.


  1. 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!

  2. These are great ideas! I also came across this while searching safety for my troop.Thank you for paying it forward!

  3. 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!

  4. 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.
