Brownie Outdoor Art Creator Badge Activity
Make a Leaf Rubbing
Make a leaf rubbing.
Time needed: 10-20 minutes
- Plant leaves
- Sheet of paper
- Crayon or chalk
- Trees with bark
Activity: Place paper over a leaf and rub it with a crayon or chalk. Try it with soft and hard leaves to see if there’s a difference. Or make a bark cast from a tree. Press clay on a tree trunk, and then remove it gently to make sure you can see the mark from the bark. Be careful not to hurt the bark or leave any clay on it. Do the same thing on several tree trunks to see the different designs in the impressions.
Troop Leaders: The instructions for all badge steps are available free of charge in your Girl Scout Volunteer Toolkit.
