5 Fun Games and Activities to earn the Brownie Girl Scout Pet Badge


My Brownie girls enjoy playing games and doing crafts. I always try to incorporate both when earning a badge. It is a great way to reinforce the skill or topic they are covering.

Here are a few ideas to add to your badge earning activities.

Can You Clean Your Dish First?

Get some doggy dishes and put Jell-O or pudding in these doggy dishes and have the kids kneel beside the dishes with their hands behind their backs and see who finishes first. Grab your camera this is going to be fun to watch.

Dog or Cat Relay

Put your girls into two teams and purchase cookie bones and cat toys. At go each girl must go to other end of track on all fours pick up a bone and eat it then run back to next person in line. Each girl must go, first team to finish wins. Added variety have girls bark as they take their turns, have them be cats and run down get cat toy and bat it all the back to next player who must then bat toy through course as well.

Dog Poo Pick Up

Give each girl a brown bag and throw candy tootsie rolls all over the play area. These tootsie rolls are now doggie poo. At go everyone must go around and clean up the meeting space of all the poo by putting it in their brown bags. The girl with the most candy wins.

Who Let the Dogs Bark?

You will need a tape recorder. Have each girl take a turn barking into a recorder or phone. Make sure you mark who’s voice is what. Then have girls guess who was barking.

…Yet another idea to make earning this badge easier…

Since I have had a multi-level troop for so many years, I tried another way to earn the badge, I used a product from makingfriends.com. They offer badge in a bag kits which has something for each step for your girls to do. I also added a few extra games with it and shared on the blog where I offered my review. Checkout my review on the product on the makingfriends blog.  My girls had fun using it and each girl went home with a pet frog. 🙂

Why Not Make Your Very Own Pet Frog

Do you remember when you were younger and you made your own pet rock? If so I bet your Brownie Girl Scouts will love it to.  Here is a kit that has everything you need to make that pet rock with your girls Craft Rock Pets Frog. If you have all the paint you need and don’t want to spend any extra of your budget on a kit, then how about a field trip, if you live near a beach or creek you could take the girls on a field trip to pick out their own rocks.

My name is Jodi Carlson, I was a leader of a Girl Scout Troop and a Girl Scout for Total of 25 years. I was blessed with a Son in March of 2015 and stepped down as leader. I decided after 25 years I have so much to share with other leaders I choose to continue building this blog and its a way for me to stay connected to scouts. If you need a specific idea feel free to email me or leave a comment I bet in 25 years I did something that I can share.
