5 Fun Games and Activities To Earn the Brownie Girl Scouts Way Badge


Time to read 3 min

When it comes to Girl Scouts, one badge that is often earned at the beginning of the year is the Brownie Girl Scouts Ways badge. This badge serves as a wonderful introduction to the organization and its values. As a troop leader, I always make it a priority to start the year off with this badge in order to lay a strong foundation for the girls and help them understand what being a Girl Scout truly means. 

Below are a few ideas to get you started.

Discovering Juliette Low: A Poster Journey

Have your girls make a poster that tells all about our founder. Use the printed pictures and statements to put together a 

 all about our founder Juliette Low. How much do the girls know about her, see how many they can figure out on their own. Each picture goes with a statement. Get your copy of this poster project here

Kaper Chart Fun

Revamp your troop's Kaper chart with a fun and interactive twist! Create a tree-shaped display using a plastic container as the base. Attach clothespins to represent the branches, and cut out adorable monkey shapes for each task or responsibility. As the girls complete their assigned tasks, they can move their monkey along the branches, adding a playful element to the chart. Not only will this creative approach make the Kaper chart more visually appealing, but it will also keep the girls engaged and excited to fulfill their responsibilities..

Friendship Bracelet Relay

This is a great craft that will allow girls to work together a group making unique friendship bracelets that everyone has a part in each one. 

Divide them into small groups or sit everyone in circle if small troop. Each group will work together to create a friendship bracelet, passing it around circle and taking turns adding their own unique touch. You can use any kind of beads that the girls can then add 1 or two beads to each one then pass it to next girl. When your bracelet makes it back to you then it is done.  

*Note you might want to mark some how so girls know which one is theirs. First time I did this there was a lot of confusion with group. 

Girl Scout Promise Skit

After practicing the Girl Scout Promise and teaching them the meaning of each line. Put your girls into small groups and create short skits that demonstrate the values of the Girl Scout Promise. Each group can showcase a different line of the Promise and act out scenarios that exemplify its meaning. The girls can present their skits to the rest of the troop, promoting creativity and understanding of the Girl Scout Way. 

Girl Scout Time Capsule

Have the girls create a time capsule that represents their current state as Brownie Girl Scouts. They can each bring something that represents their favorite Girl Scout memory, a goal they want to achieve, or a message they want to leave for their future selves. Bury the time capsule in a safe place and plan to unearth it at the end of their Girl Scout journey.

Remember, while earning badges is important, the ultimate goal is to provide girls with a fun and enriching experience. These games and activities will not only help them earn the Brownie Girl Scout Ways badge, but also foster a sense of camaraderie, teamwork, and a deeper understanding of what it means to be a Girl Scout.

What do we do after your girls complete the activities?

Well of course give them the Brownie Girl Scout Ways 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.

Enjoy every minute being a leader and continue to inspire your girls!
