Cadette Comic Artist Badge Activity
Make Sticky-Note Comics
Time needed: 30-45 minutes
- Sticky notes
- Drawing tools (called mediums) like colored pencils, regular pencils, or pens.
Activity: Make sticky-note comics. Get the hang of comic stories by drawing one of these on a sticky note (rough, rough sketching, remember!
- a dog floating on a raft
- a hawk diving
- a girl at bat
Take another sticky note and add:
- the cat that’s swimming past the dog
- the prey the hawk is diving for
- the ball the girl is trying to hit
Now, take a third sticky note and add another element to each panel:
- another cat chasing the first cat that’s swimming past the dog
- a larger hawk after the prey the hawk is diving for
- the catcher waiting for the ball the girl is trying to hit
Now, imagine how your three sticky notes could be turned into a whole comic story. Then make up a story with friends or family and draw it out using regular paper or several sticky notes.
For More FUN: Draw all nine scenarios and make all of them tell one story
Note: Girls, volunteers and families are encouraged to take the time and space they need to adjust to this period of rapid change and uncertainty. When they’re ready, we’re here to support Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts to safely take action in their communities—whether it’s helping ensure kids are still getting the nourishment and enrichment they need out of school, responding to the possible ramifications of isolation during social distancing, adapting an existing project to positively impact local communities today, or something else entirely!
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.
