Junior Staying Fit Badge Activity


Create a Stress-Free Zone

Find a place in your home or outside that you can go when you feel stressed.

Activity Details

Time needed: 15–30 minutes

Materials needed: None

Activity: Find a place in your home or outside that you can go when you feel stressed. Take a bag of your favorite things with you and spend 15 minutes there the next three times you need a break. Make it a quiet and relaxing place, or a loud dancing/jumping around area (so long as you’re not stressing out someone else!).

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.
