Sunny the Sunflower (Yellow), Friendly & Helpful Petal

Tessa's Lupe petal was getting rather lonely, so we used our couple of days off from school after Thanksgiving to earn a few more petals for Tessa's vest. We stuck to the suggestions in The Daisy Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting for Sunny's petal. We really had a good time creating a mini mural of what happened at Buckley's party. I loved Tessa's idea of envisioning that the party was underground, so we ran with it. I was in charge of the background. Tessa drew the characters and then raided her craft basket for foam stickers, pom-poms and wiggly eyes.

Sunny the Sunflower (Yellow), Friendly & Helpful Petal



What We Did
  • Discussed the Sunny the Sunflower (Yellow), Friendly and Helpful petal.
  • Read "Sunny's Story: A Warm Welcome for Suzy" from The Daisy Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting.
  • Talked about "Sunny's Story" per patch requirements.
  • Created a mini mural based on "Sunny's Story" per badge requirements. Tessa chose to illustrate what happened at Buckley's party.
  • Practiced being friendly and helpful. Tessa helped me collect the trash (and change the bags) from our household trashcans. She also surprised me by filling up our napkin dispenser without being asked. She hadn't ever filled it up before. She was proud to tell me that she knew it was something she could do on her own, so she did it to be helpful.
  • Completed the "Congratulations!" portion of the Sunny the Sunflower (Yellow), Friendly and Helpful petal.

Tessa went all out making a mini mural for her Sunny petal. After drawing the characters from "Sunny's Story," (which I think are absolutely adorable...especially Buckley, the gopher) she used foam stickers and pom-poms to decorate Buckley's party. Everyone received tiaras and castles as party favors. Suzy received an extra special tiara to help make her feel welcome. All Tessa's ideas, of course.
