This is a fun badge that my Brownies have always enjoyed. As a leader, I appreciate the fact that it doesn’t require a lot of advance prep work. Given that this is a shadow-based badge it may work better to do this during the winter months especially if you live in the south like I do.
This Health and Food Knowledge patch generally takes about an hour to complete including snack. This patch does not require a lot of preparation, and with the exception of the jump ropes and yoga mats, you most likely have the art supplies on hand.
The Girl Scouts of Maine have a patch program for Daisies and can be done over a series of meetings. I’ve done all six of these with my Daisies and I recommend starting with the Art Knowledge Patch. It’s pretty active and what Daisy doesn’t like to be creative and show off her art and music skills!
We’re closely approaching that time of year when Girl Scouts bridge to the next level. This can be an extremely stressful period for even the most experienced troop leader. Here are five Dos and Dont’s for a great end-of-year troop celebration.
I got a request to set the record straight on this whole badges versus patches discussion, so I thought I do a post but also throw in a little bit about retired badges and Council’s Own badges.
