Brownie Inventor Badge
Warm Up Your Inventor’s Mind
Girls learn to think like an inventor.
Time needed: 30-60 minutes
- Cardboard box
- Markers or crayons
- Assorted craft materials
Setup: Inventors warm up their minds so they can be creative! One way to do that is to find different ways to use things. If you’ve ever found a new way to use a tool or toy, you’re already an inventor! This activity will help you explore being an inventor.
Activity: Find an empty cardboard box. Make up five new uses for your box. You could use it to store your toys, build a playhouse, make a hat, or create a bed for your pet. Don’t be afraid to think of something wacky and unusual. Sometimes the crazy ideas are the best ones!
Troop Leaders: The instructions for all badge steps are available free of charge in your Girl Scout Volunteer Toolkit.
Girl Scouts at Home activities have been adapted from existing Girl Scout programming and optimized for use at home during a period of social distancing.
