5 Fun Activities to help you earn the Junior Musician Badge


Time to read 3 min

Today I want to share great ideas to teach your girls about music. Instead of a typical meeting turn it into a party. I will give you the ideas for the food and drinks, along with activities to earn the Junior Musician Badge. I also made labels that I printed on white card stock and glued to color card stock for the labels of food on tables. Feel free to print and use for your next meeting or event.

Junior Musician Badge Activity Booklet

The musician activity booklet will teach your girls more about how music is made, what has changed over the last century with the types of music that were most popular during each decade, learn more about how music is in our everyday life, and will be given tools to help plan and perform their very own musical performance. Learn more about this activity booklet.

Food and Decoration Ideas for Musical Performance

Use the labels below just print them and glue to colorful card stock. Below is a description of each of the labels

  • Chips (Treble Clef Chips)
  • Cupcakes (Musical Jam Cupcakes)
    The cupcakes were made by a Girl who use to be in our Girl Scout troop (graduated) she did a amazing job!
  • Punch (Musical Fuel)
    You could do punch or water or soda
  • Veggies (Classical Music Veggies)
    Lay out the fruit in colorful way
  • Fruit (A Xylophone of Fruit)
    Lay out the fruit so it looks like a Xylophone
  • Fruit loops/Cheerios (Whole Notes)
    I used individual containers for each child so there was not cross handling of fruit loops and cheerios
  • Pizza (Rhythm Pizza)
  • Blank heart design
    use this for whatever you want we had extra brownies come in so used the label for that.

Save a trip to the party store and purchase party supplies for great price right on Amazon. This set comes with everything and rainbow colored to fit the music theme.

For the cupcakes we wanted something a little more unique then the typical cupcake cover. Check out this musical cupcake stand.

See the pictures below of how we set up the tables…

Make a Harmonica

What you need:

  • 2 Popsicle Sticks (I recommend the wide ones)
  • 2 Rubber Bands (I recommend grabbing som string as well)
  • A strip of paper the same size as the Popsicle Stick
  • 2 toothpicks cut the width or just wider than the Popsicle Stick

Putting it together:

  1. Put the paper strip in between the 2 popsicle sticks. Then wrap the rubber band around one end until it is very snug. If you want to use the string tie that as well after rubber band is put on. Slide the toothpick to the inside of the rubber band that you just added. Then put the last toothpick at the other end of popsicle sticks and wrap that side with the rubber band. Now you are ready to use your new harmonica.

Note Worksheet

Have fun solving a puzzle while also learning more about music with the Note Worksheet. I explained to the girls that music is made by playing a combination of different sounds in an arranged pattern. These sounds are called notes, and last for different amounts of time depending on how they are arranged. Print the sheet below and do with your girls.

Fun With Duct Tape

You could make just about anything with duct tape and you can do it using musical note designed tape to keep with the theme of your badge work, Here is one type you can get right from Amazon

Now what do you make with the Duct Tape? That can be just about anything. I have put together a board on Pinterest with a pile of craft ideas using Duct Tape. Check out the Duct Tape Pinterest Board

What do we do after your girls complete the activities?

Well of course give them the Junior Musician 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.
