Time needed: 30–45 minutes
The Girl Scout Law says:
I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
respect myself and others,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
In this activity, you’ll think about ways to be courageous and strong—just like Tula the Tulip!
Start by listening to “Tula’s Story."
Once you’ve heard the story, do these three activities to earn your Tula petal. (You can also follow along with the video to hear the steps after the story.)
Draw a picture or make a collage of an animal that you think is courageous and strong. Put it someplace where you’ll see it every day to remind you of how you’d like to act.
Learn a song that makes you feel courageous and strong. Sing it every morning for a week—or teach it to your family or Daisy friends and have a sing-along!
Find a person who is courageous and strong, either in real life or in a book, movie, or TV show. Tell your family about that person and why you think they are courageous and strong.
Congratulations! You’ve earned your Tula petal. Now when you say the Girl Scout Law, you’ll know exactly what the “courageous and strong” line means.
Troop Leaders: The instructions for all badge steps are available free of charge in the Girl Scout Volunteer Toolkit.
