Squirrels Get Creative Activity Badge

Squirrels Get Creative Activity Badge

Get Creative badge

Draw. Sing. Move. Build. Create. There are lots of different ways to let your imagination go wild. What will you try first?

How to earn your badge:

  1. Use your imagination to make a picture or model of something you love. It could be anything from a flying monkey to a dinosaur in the bath.

    You could use traditional materials like paints or crayons, use a computer or tablet, or get stuck in with something different like mud or grass.

  2. Singing songs and doing the actions gives us the chance to use our imagination and have fun. Help another Squirrel learn a song with actions.

    You could make up your own song, add new actions to a song you already know, or teach them an action song you’ve learned before.

  3. The natural world has inspired lots of creative designs, from trains shaped like birds to glass inspired by spiders’ webs. Work with another Squirrel to create something using natural materials.

    You could create a picture using leaves, bark rubbings, and twigs; paint with mud; or take pictures to use in a collage.

June 2024.
