Summer is the season of fun, and there is no better place for younger girls to be than with their Girl Scout troop!

I've created a light and easy list of fun activities you can do right now with Girl Scouts at any age level.
This activity booklet was designed to fulfill the requirements for the Brownie Outdoor Art Creator badge or can be used by frontier girl leaders to earn similar badges. Great for teachers and home schooled kids as well. This activity booklet will give you a chance to bring your art and the outdoors together.

The more you learn about them, the less scared you’ll become! Use some of these ideas below to learn more about the environment and understand every creature’s importance in our natural world.
