Juliette Low crafts are are a great way to teach about how amazing she was!
Juliette Gordon Low (1860–1927), often known by her famous nickname “Daisy,” founded Girl Scouts of the USA in 1912. Her goal was to create a movement where ALL girls could come together and embrace their unique strengths and passions. This is what Girl Scouts has been doing ever since she turned that dream into a reality. This adorable craft project is a great way to learn about what an amazing woman and leader she was.
Materials and Supplies Needed
This project can be done as complex or simple as desired. If making this with young girls (Daisies in particular) the background can be done with simple crayon and marker coloring. However, this tutorial is going to show the project using mixed media techniques that are really fun for older girls.
