Everything You Need to Earn The Daisy Girl Scout Safety Award


Daisy Safety Award PinWhen I looked through the requirements for the Daisy Safety Award for daisy girl scouts in their books there was not much to it. When they earned the pin I wanted them to really understand safety concepts so that they could wear it proudly and truly understand fire and personal safety and be able to share with others.

Earn award using a Daisy Safety Award Printable Booklet

This award for Daisy Girl Scouts will teach the girls about their personal safety, choking safety, and fire safety. In the Girl Scout Leader Connect printable booklet you will find a number of activities, a craft and games used to help girls remember their address and phone number, what to do when someone is choking and what to do in a fire emergency.

Print the booklet and you will have everything you need to earn the safety award and when the girls have completed it they will understand the safety concepts to wear the pin proudly and be able to share what they learned with others.

Do you just need a few additional ideas? 

Here are a few ideas I have also used in past for this award that your girls will love

Create Your Own Fire 

Daisy Safety Award PinGirls 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 was a leader of a Girl Scout Troop and a Girl Scout for Total of 25 years. I was blessed with a Son in March of 2015 and stepped down as leader. I decided after 25 years I have so much to share with other leaders I choose to continue building this blog and its a way for me to stay connected to scouts. If you need a specific idea feel free to email me or leave a comment I bet in 25 years I did something that I can share.


  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.
