Welcome to Brownies at Home page, set up specifically so our Brownies can keep in touch during the COVID-19 lockdowns. Daffodil has created a Brownies At Home programme for Brownies to work through various challenge badges and Brownie Interest Badges during the Summer Holidays and beyond! Below are lots of activities to download and links to other sites providing even more activities! For those activities with badges, send Daffodil evidence of completion and she will order the badges (for our Brownies only though!). Stay tuned for updates as and when they occur.
In her role as County Brownie Adviser, Daffodil has created a challenge badge to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. This is available to any Girlguiding member, not just those within Lincolnshire South County. At 1st Waddington (RAF) Brownies, we will complete 10-12 challenges over 2 meetings and then challenge the Brownies to complete the rest at home. This verson of the Challenge is for our Unit’s parents. If anyone else would like the full version, please contact Daffodil via this website. Deadline for completion is Friday 1 July and Daffodil will order the badges in August . Download the Challenge pack from here. Good luck!
We will be challenging our Brownies again to complete the 1st Papworth Rainbows Advent Challenge badge. To earn a free badge, Brownies need to complete 24 challenges (out of 60 listed). Parents to email evidence of completed challenges to Daffodil or post in our closed Facebook group. Deadline for completion is Saturday 31 December and Daffodil will order the badges in the New Year. For those who completed the Challenge in 2021, a different badge will be awarded. Download the Challenge pack from here. Good luck!
1st Waddington Brownies – Interest Badge Boredom 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 all 18 Interest badges for Brownies to follow if they don’t have a badge book. The programme also includes 15 other fun activities to do for those who don’t want to complete the badges. Badges awarded for completing 3 matching coloured boxes (not white boxes) on one page. 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 Brownie Interest Badge Boredom Buster here.
Girlguiding launched their #AdventuresAtHome programme in 2020 and have added an #Adventures at Home page to their website here which is full of official programme resources Brownies can complete at home. Their Monthly Challenge and activities are also on their website here.
Once a term we usually have a pow-wow to share and suggest ideas for the next few terms; however, Brownies can submit any ideas or suggestions at any time!
Daffodil is now working on next year’s programme – so this is your chance to have your say.
The “My Ideas” form is here . Complete and email to Daffodil so she can includes as many ideas as possible. Don’t worry if you don’t have a printer, just write them down in an email and we will try to incorporate as many as possible.
Daffodil has uploaded all the programmes and resources she has created and adapted. These can be found on our new Leaders’ Resources page here.
