Other Fun Activities To Try
Learning More About Depression
I came across a great program from a company called Kids Health in the class room. It focuses completely on depression. If your girls are interested in learning more about depression. If any of their friends are acting irritable and moody or even withdrawn it could be a sign of depression. This program was designed for 9th to 12th grade kids. Click here for program

Part of being healthy is making sure your active, you are eating a balanced diet, avoid stress and make sure your mental health is intact. This board game will bring this all together for your girls. They will have fun competing against each other and not even realize they are learning at the same time. While playing the game girls are focusing on winning the golden ticket to become the “Coach of the Game”. Your girls will learn how to be healthy and be active at the same time. They will be answering pop quiz questions and completing exercise challenges. It also includes a Food Scale Chart showing healthy food choices and Workout Poster to do even more exercises.

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.

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.
