If your looking for ideas to make your meeting more fun while teaching your girls how to make the world a better place you have come to the right place. Using some of these activities below to help your girls respect nature and teach them not to harm the environment by always picking up trash and and never pick on someone for being different because being different is what makes us all special.

I recommend the following activities that will reinforce making the world a better place:

  • Practice with activities
  • Be creative with a craft
  • Get moving with a game
  • Put into action with a service project or real life experience.
  • Optionally: If I have a song that related, sing that as well.

Below are a few ideas to get you started.

What do we do after your girls complete the activities?

Well of course give them the badge to display proudly on their vest, they earned it!  Additionally If you are like many leaders we want to award our girls when they complete something even beyond just the patch. One great way to show achievement is with a certificate. Don’t worry you don’t have to make them, I found a resource that has done all the work for you and all you have to do is print them and customize the certificates with each girl’s name, badge or award earned, date, and troop leader.  Editable certificates perfect for awarding girls after earning a badge.
