Junior Global Action Activity: Time Capsule


Make a Time Capsule


Share our sisterhood with future Girl Scouts.

Activity Details

Time needed: 30–45 minutes

Materials needed:  Anything you can find in your home to build a time capsule about your experience with Girl Scouting.

Activity: “Sisterhood” doesn’t just mean the sisters in your family. All the girls and women who are Girl Scouts try to live by the Girl Scout Law. That’s what makes us a Girl Scout sisterhood. Use our Law’s important lines to get closer to your sisters across time and space.

Make a time capsule. Get together with another group of Juniors—via phone or video chat!—to show girls in the future how Girl Scout Juniors practiced the Girl Scout Law today. Collect items that show Girl Scout values; maybe photos, souvenirs from your Leadership Journeys, stories you’ve written, or patches from your favorite Girl Scout events. Put them in a waterproof container, and decide on a special place for your time capsule. (Some are buried in the ground or placed in a wall or safe.) Write instructions for when and who should retrieve the capsule!

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.
