For the week of May 4, 2020, GSCO Outreach Program Coordinator Amanda is helping Girl Scout Juniors earn their Staying Fit badge! Watch this video for an introduction to the badge. In Step One, we learned how to get our bodies moving. Moving on to Step Two, let’s learn how to keep your fit body fueled. You can do that by watching this video about the Food Plate. You can also try preparing some of these healthy snacks and playing Fruit and Vegetable BINGO.
To play Fruit and Vegetable BINGO , you will need to either print the attached BINGO card or you can create one of your own. To create one of your own you will need: a plain sheet of paper, ruler or straight edge, and pencil/ pen.
Make a grid of squares that is five squares wide by five squares down for a total of 25 squares. You will only need 25 squares because we will not use the letters U, V, or X. Once you have your grid created, put FREE in the center and then just add the rest of the alphabet randomly.
Start filling in the squares with a vegetable or fruit that starts with the letter in the square. If you get stuck, you can ask a friend for help or do your own research.
- One Point for each square filled out
- Two Points for each fruit or vegetable you have tried
- Three Points for anything you looked up
- Five Points for each BINGO
- 10 Points for a completely filled out card
Add up your points and see how you did.
Challenge a family member or friend to see how they do.
Did you find anything you want to try? Were there any new fruits or vegetables that you never heard about before?
We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
