Give a bunch of examples of clothes through the years, hair styles, and shoes and have girls put a timeline chart together 1920 1930 1940 so on and then have girls try to organize the fashion items where they below. Have them use the internet or fashion books to come up with the answers.

If you don’t want to spend the time planning this badge, 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 activity?

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.
