Brownies at Home!

Welcome to our new page, set up specifically so our Brownies can keep in touch during the COVID-19 enforced Girlguiding suspension.   Daffodil has created a Brownies At Home programme for Brownies to work through badges, activities and our programme (if they want) at home – these were hand delivered on Monday 23rd March.  Below is a breakdown of the programme plus so other activities to download and links to other sites providing even more activities!  Stay tuned for updates as and when they occur.  Keep safe, keep healthy and keep in touch 🙂


Thank You Posters

Below is a PDF containing 4 different thank you posters for key workers and NHS staff.  Feel free to colour in and stick in your windows. The poster for the bin men is designed to be stuck on your bin lid 🙂 Thank You Posters here


Other Activity Sites

Pawprint badges are running a competition to design a badge. All details here.  Deadline for entries is 30th June.

Brownies – Boredom Badge Buster

What a good time to complete some interest badges!  These are also an essential element of the programme and girls need to complete one per theme in order to receive their theme awards and subsequent bronze/silver/gold awards.

We’ve created a programme covering 17 of the 18 Interest badges for Brownies to follow if they don’t have a badge book.  The programme also includes 18 other fun activities to do for those who don’t want to complete the badges.   There is more detail in the Badge books and we do recommend them.    We have a small supply of badge books for sale at half price £3.50 with a free bookmark thrown in.  Email Daffodil to order one.  Download our Boredom Badge Buster Challenge here.

A hard copy of the Boredom Badge Buster programme was been hand delivered to all Brownies on Monday 23rd March.  If parents would like more activities, please email Daffodil.


Brownies – Easter Badge Challenge

We have also created our version of the Easter Badge Challenge pack that another unit has produced.  This includes lots of quick, simple but fun activities covering 4 different challenge badges.:

Farmyard Fun: Moo! Oink! & Neigh! badges  – 9 themed activities to complete for each badge.
Nature Fun: Ladybird & Butterfly badges – 9 themed activities to complete for these badges.
Journey into Europe – for Guides but we think some of our older Brownies could manage this Challenge badge.  One challenge from each Section (Food, Animals, Craft & Find Out) to be completed.

Brownies will need to provide proof that they have completed all clauses before ordering the badges.  A hard copy of this Challenge was hand delivered along with a few other goodies to all our Brownies on Monday 23rd March.  If parents would like more activities, please email Daffodil.
