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.
Time needed: 30-45 minutes
- Water colors
- 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.
