Girl Scout Troop 77918 is so excited to share their collaborative mural honoring the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at the Longmont Library! Our Brownies earned their Painting badge by painting a nature scene with found items, talking about how paint colors can reflect their moods, and each Girl Scout painting two sections of this collaborative mural.

The Brownie mural was then presented to our whole troop while working on the Democracy badge on Election Night. During this meeting, we learned about the branches of our government, read the book “Grace for President” by Kelly DiPucchio, voted on our next badges to be completed, and learned about all the amazing things that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg accomplished for our country.

Take a walk past the Longmont Library to see our mural on the East Side of the Building!

Third Grade Brownie Troop 67255 recently earned their Pets badge. While learning all about pet care, the girls also had fun making fleece dog blankets. The troop donated the blankets, along with some canned dog food, to the Little Old Dog Sanctuary. The sanctuary rescues old and special needs dogs and cares for them to their end of life.

Bugs Badge Activity

A few days back we had a surprise visitor! It was a bug on our trash bin in the garage. It’s out of the ordinary for me to welcome the friendly bug and surprising for my parents to see how happy I was to introduce them to a praying mantis. I shared my knowledge about this very unique species that I learned while doing the Bugs badge activities!

Girl Scouting at Home: Brownie Pets badge Part Two of Five

Girl Scouts of Colorado’s Outreach Program team has created a series of materials, including videos, to help Girl Scout Brownies earn their Pets badge at home! Step One was to find out what care different pets need. For Step Two, you’re going learn about keeping pets comfortable, so we’re going to make a cozy cat cave.

Materials

  • Deep Cardboard Box (with no lid)- You can use different-sized boxes to make a cat cave that works best for the age and breed of your cat. Use the box that will work best for your cat’s needs!
  • Long sleeve T-shirt
  • One rubber band
  • Comfy bedding material (blanket, towel, or even a sweater)

Directions

  1. Begin by stretching your long-sleeved T-shirt around the box, with the neck-hole of the T-shirt facing the open top of the box.
  2. Next, pull the shirt around the box in such a way that the neckhole of the T-shirt is centered on the top of the box. The neck hole will be the “door” that enables the cat to enter the cave.
  3. Once you have the “door” of the cave centered on the box, pull the sleeves of the T-shirt tight around the back of the box and secure them together. If the sleeves are long enough, you can tie the sleeves together. Otherwise, just use a rubber-band to connect the two sleeves.
  4. Finally, place the bedding material inside the box to complete your comfy cat cave. If you have any of your cat’s favorite toys or catnip, you can also put that inside the cave to make it extra welcoming for your furry friend.

We also created a video to help you complete this step of the badge, check it out here.
