The Junior Girl Scout Ways badge is part of the “Legacy” badge set introduced in 2011.
For the badges released in 2011, scouts must complete all of the activities listed to earn the badge.
Please add ideas to customize the activities and other useful resources below.
Activity #1: Match songs to an occasionEdit
- For the Girl Scout birthday, Bridging, Juliette Low's birthday, Thinking Day, or other special occasions, have the girls pick some special songs to sing, practice them, and, if appropriate, perform them. Lots of songs are available on the web. Attached is one songbook File:Girl Scout Songs.docx to look through.
Activity #2: Celebrate the Girl Scout birthdayEdit
- Grandma Girl Scout meeting. For the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts, my Daisy/Brownie troop (but could be done for any level) invited some of our scouts' grandmas who were scouts when they were young come to lead the program. They talked about what they did as scouts and how they talked and dressed that was different than today. Not all of them were in scouts at the same time or even from the same part of the country, so the girls got different perspectives, which was great. The girls then broke up into three different stations to: (1) learn some songs the grandmas used to sing; (2) play some games they used to play; and (2) make a snack from the past. The grandmas were very excited to come and work with their granddaughters. Lots of fun all around!
Activity #4: Leave a place better than you found itEdit
The girls can clean up the meeting place once it is finished. This may include picking up trash, cleaning the tables, and washing any materials (paint brushes, plates, utensils, etc.). This can also be done separately with each girl visiting their local park for a clean up day.
