Daisy Outdoor Art Maker Badge Activity


See the Colors of Nature

Make a colorful painting outdoors. On a sunny day, go outside to a place where you can see lots of colors—maybe your backyard, a park with flowers or a field with pretty trees and leaves.

Activity Details

Time needed: 30-45 minutes

Materials needed:

  • Water colors
  • Brushes
  • Container of water
  • Lemon juice

Activity: If you cannot go outside look out a window, or find an outdoor scene in a amily photo or online. Have an adult help you set up a place to make a watercolor painting of what you see. It doesn’t have to look exactly like it; you can be as creative as you want to be! When you’re finished painting, drip little drops of lemon juice on your painting. When it dries, talk about how the lemon juice changed how your painting looked.

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.
