Use this free printable to help girls understand the meaning of the three parts to the Girl Scout Promise.
About the Three Finger Salute
Girl Scouts make the Girl Scout sign by raising three fingers of the right hand with the thumb holding down the pinky. Each finger represents one of the three parts of the promise. NOTE that the word “God” can be substituted to meet the needs of any and all religious beliefs.
The three fingers represent the three parts of the Girl Guide and Girl Scout promise and echo the core values of integrity, citizenship and spirituality.
Free Printable Activity Ideas
Use this free activity printable (download it below) to reinforce the three finger salute and the Girl Scout promise. It can be colored in different skin tones which makes it extra inclusive.
Another fun idea is to add bracelets to the arm in the version without the arm of the clothing.
Girl Scout Three Finger Salute Craft Idea
This is really fun for the younger girls. Have them trace their hand.
Cut the hand out then bend the thumb and pinkie finger. Attach them with a tape runner or glue stick to make the salute. If you put all of these together into a troop garland, it is a great way to create connection and sisterhood.

Best Ways to Use Free Printables
You might have seen this list from me before but I think it is worth sharing over and over. Sometimes the people in the back need to hear things a few times, right? There are so many great ways to use free printables. Here are some of my favorites.
- Print them and mail in an envelope with a stamp. Snail mail rocks.
- Batch some up to make an activity book. This is great for a road trip!
- Print and use at a place setting on the table to create a conversation starter.
- Add them to goody bags. By the way, goody bags are not just for birthday parties.
- Package them up with your favorite markers and crayons to give as a gift.
- Drop a few off at the local coffee shop with fun pencils to spread some happy.
- Cut them up to make cards, gift wrap and decorations.
