Squirrels Brilliant Builder Activity Badge

Squirrels Brilliant Builder Activity Badge

Brilliant Builder badge

People (and animals) can build all sorts of amazing things of different shapes and sizes. Now it’s your turn to create something exciting. Your imagination’s the limit.

How to earn your badge:

  1. Buildings, statues, and bridges can be made of lots of different materials. Can you create something strong that can hold something heavy?

    You could use building blocks, paper, or something else. People could design their own thing or follow a pattern or template – it’s up to you.  

  2. People live in all sorts of different buildings – they were all designed by people called architects and built by people called builders. Choose a toy or teddy, design a home for them to live in, then build it.

    You could make your design on a computer or tablet or draw it on some paper. You could use natural materials, building blocks, cushions, or something totally different.  

  3. Some of the best builders are animals, who create their own places to live. Work as a team to build a big den that you can all sit in and do an activity.

    You could use natural materials to make a den outside or build one indoors using chairs and blankets.
