My girls are not involved in Girl Scouts or American Heritage girls, but I wanted them to have the time to earn badges much like those two groups do. At the beginning of the summer, the girls brainstormed the badges that they wanted to work on. They decided to name themselves “God’s Girls” and they really wanted to create a uniform for their new group and wear it when they do their badge work. Too cute! My job was to figure out how to make a sash for them to wear and how to represent the badges or make badges for the sash. (I CANNOT SEW!) I have terribly let them down in this area and need to figure this out quickly!
Here is a list of the badges they wanted to work on:
Make new friends
They have been working on several of these. The first one they attempted was Cooking. They learned to make brownies and mac n cheese. They were required to do all the reading, cooking and clean up. They have now done that twice and they need a badge! Their reading badge will be finished when they complete their summer reading for school. Emma is done and Olivia has a few more chapters- I need a badge for this! They will earn their swimming badge when they can successfully swim a full lap in the pool. Olivia is REALLY close and Emma is half way there. They will be doing their service badge this week by having a lemonade stand and donating the money to something or someone that they select. I need help making a sash and badges for both of them. Any ideas?
