Kids are always trying to discover and understand how things work, what they do, who made them. Wouldn’t it be fun to invent something fun themselves. Here are a few ideas to add to your badge earning activities.

Inventor Activity Booklet

This booklet will have activities that are hands on to keep the girls engaged while learning about how to invite and create their own products and ideas.  With step by step activities, you can’t ask for a easier way to run your meeting. Learn more about this activity booklet and get yours today!

Practice Making Inventions

I found this great kit that will help your girls build a motor, a telegraph, a light-flashing generator and a real radio. Everything you need to do it is included in kit. Get yours here: Inventions Kit

Inventor Song

Get the MP3 here so you will have tune: Inventor’s Song (Accompaniment)
Oh it took Bell to make the telephone ring,
And it took Edison to light up our way.
It took Robert Fulton in a steamboat,
To go chug-chug-chugging down the bay.

Otis made the elevator go up,
McCormick’s reaper reaped the rye.
So when you’re spelling the word, America,
Don’t forget to dot the I….

for the inventors, don’t forget to dot the I!

George Pullman made the sleeping car
for railroad trips at night.
Lou Waterman made the fountain pen
so everyone could write.

Richard Hoe made the rotary press,
so we could get the news.
Charles Goodyear made the rubber
for the heels upon our shoes.

So if you talk about a new invention.
Incidentally don’t forget to mention….

That it took Morse to make the telegraph hum
Colt to make the Colt 45
And it took Henry Ford to make an auto
So that folks could go and take a drive
Howe knew how to make a sewing machine
The Wrights learned the right way to fly
So when you’re spelling the word, America,
Don’t forget to dot the I….

for the inventors, don’t forget to dot the I!

More Resources For My Leader Readers 

I get asked a lot what other resources are out there on the internet for Leaders.  I have done some digging over the years and have used many of the resources myself. I compiled a list of some great companies that sell patches, programs and also other bloggers offering amazing resources that may fit your needs even better than my site did.   Checkout what I found.

My name is Jodi Carlson, I am a mom, wife, & web designer and come with 25 years of GS experience. I am now sharing my experiences and helping other Girl leaders be great and successful and shape today’s girls to be the leaders of tomorrow. I was blessed with a Son in March of 2015 and stepped down as a full time girl leader, but missed planning and volunteering, so I decided after 25 years I have so many ideas to inspire girls and help leaders so I choose to build this blog and it has grown into a resource beyond GS, I am reaching girl leaders in many organizations.

  1. Ho Jodi,

    I like the picture(“Fun Ideas to Earn the Brownie Inventor badge”) you use for this article. I was trying to create a Google sign up sheet for our troop’s Inventor badge field trip. It would look great with the image. Can I have your permission to use it?

    Thank you,
    Helen
