The Painting Try-it 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 Try-it activities and other useful resources below.
Activity #1: Get InspiredEdit
Activity #2: Paint the Real WorldEdit
Our troop has both Brownies and Juniors in it. We combined this requirement with the Junior Drawing badge #1 requirement to draw still life pictures. First, the Brownies worked on a #5, Paint a Mural, then we set up 4 still lifes around the room (traditional fruit bowl, some stuffed animals, a pile of spy gear, and some camping equipment with a girl scout vest). The Brownies drew one of these, then went back to a painting station to paint it. The Juniors rotated around the room drawing different still lifes.
Activity #3: Paint a MoodEdit
Our troop listened to different types of music and painting what we felt while listening.
Activity #4: Paint without BrushesEdit
Activity #5: Paint a MuralEdit
We combined this requirements with the Brownie Girl Scout Way Requirement #3, Share Sisterhood, to create a mural of activities they have enjoyed in Girl Scouts so far.
