Autumn is in full swing complete with changing leaves and chilly air (it is officially pumpkin spice latte season!). November is the perfect time to really ring in fall with seasonal activities and fun patches for your girls to earn! With the coming holidays approaching, these patches are sure to teach your troop valuable lessons about charity and saving money, all while having fun! Not to mention the patches are an awesome display of achievement for your girls, courtesy of Advantage Emblem and Screen Printing!

Food Drive Patch

November is definitely an abundant time for food, but also a time to reflect on how fortunate we are! The food drive patch can be a fun and charitable way to encourage your girls to give back. Send home a flier so your troop can generate buzz for the event, collect as many canned and non-perishable goods as possible, and donate the food to a local shelter or charity supported by your troop!

Add this patch to the back of each girls’ vest after the food drive event by purchasing here.

Super Shopper Patch

Shopping for the holidays doesn’t exactly come cheap! This super shopper patch can teach your girls a valuable lesson about saving (this is also the perfect opportunity to incorporate Scout Cash or these pretend dollar bills ). Bring assorted food items related to Thanksgiving (a can of stuffing, sparkling cider, etc), create a price tag for each item, give each girl a set amount to work with and let the fun begin!

You can also take the girls on a field trip to the grocery store when it comes time to plan your troop’s Thanksgiving potluck to educate on saving and healthy spending habits as well!

Be sure to grab your patch to showcase the important life skills your troop learned! Get your Super Shopper patch now!

Pie Making Patch

This is a super fun patch to represent the month. You can divide your girls up into teams and assign each team a popular holiday pie to create (apple, pumpkin, cherry, etc!). You will need this pie-making guide that will help your girls create a variety of mini pies, perfect for the whole troop to share! Let the baking begin!

Order your pie making patch now! What a sweet reminder of a fun day!


Doesn’t November just scream “Thanksgiving!” This seasonal Thanksgiving patch celebrates the bonds your troop has formed over the year. A potluck can bring all of your girls together in festivity! Have each girl bring a special dish from their culture or a favorite food! It’s a great way to start a conversation and make memories.

Your girls will be able to taste the memories whenever they look at this fun patch. Get your Thanksgiving patch here today!

Veteran’s Day

This patriotic Veteran’s Day patch gives your troop a chance to understand courage and give thanks to our nation’s veterans. There are several things you can do to commemorate this day. You can visit a memorial site or even a retirement home for the chance to meet a veteran and hear their stories.
