Write a Real Author
Are you looking for new exciting ways to learn more about writing? Did you ever think you could write an author and actually get a response. Rachele the writer of “You Throw Like a Girl” does just that. Because getting to read a book and write a letter to the author is a fun one and this author loves writing to troops! Learn how to write a real author.
First you will want to get some writing paper – instead of boring old notebooks you could get each girl their very own journal to write in. Here are a few options that your girls may love:
- Give your girls a inspiring quote on the front of the journal they will be writing in throughout this badge: She Believed She Could So She Did
- There are a variety of styles to pick from and they come in sets of 8: Pocket Pal Mini Journals, Set of 8
Another resource that has always helped me in planning is Pinterest – I found some great Pinterest boards that are specifically targeted toward this writing
If you don’t want to spend the time planning, our Activity Booklet has step-by-step instructions with activities that don’t require any planning other than gathering supplies and printing booklets.
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.
More Resources For You Beyond This Site
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.
