musicToday I want to share a great idea for your Junior music badge. Instead of a typical meeting where you work on badge requirements turn it into a party.

I will give you the ideas for the food and drinks, along with a few of the activities we did with the badge. I also made labels that I printed on white card stock and glued to color card stock for the labels of food on tables. Feel free to print and use for your next party.

First I purchased a few things from Oriental Trading for the party. We wanted all the tables to be covered with colorful table clothes which you will see in many of the pictures. I bought the 12 pack of multi colors and they worked great. Check them out here

Secondly for the cupcakes we wanted something a little more unique then the typical cupcake cover. So we purchased the multi color cupcake stands and laid them out on table. Now I would say by far these are a must for such a unique party. Check them out on oriental here

While I was ordering Oriental I saved myself a trip to the party store and also purchased all the plates, napkins, and silverware right from oriental. The quality was great and price was what I would expect. I bought different colors for each thing so it added to the multi color of the event.  check out the wide variety click here

Food For Party – Use the labels to the right just print them and glue to colorful card stock. Below is a description of each of the labels

  • Chips (Treble Clef Chips)
  • Cupcakes (Musical Jam Cupcakes)
    The cupcakes were made by a Girl who use to be in our Girl Scout troop (graduated) she did a amazing job!
  • Punch (Musical Fuel)
    You could do punch or water or soda
  • Veggies (Classical Music Veggies)
    Lay out the fruit in colorful way
  • Fruit (A Xylophone of Fruit)
    Lay out the fruit so it looks like a Xylophone
  • Fruit loops/Cheerios (Whole Notes)
    I used individual containers for each child so there was not cross handling of fruit loops and cheerios
  • Pizza (Rhythm Pizza)
  • Blank heart design
    use this for whatever you want we had extra brownies come in so used the label for that.

See the pictures below of how we set up the tables…

Junior Music Badge Ideas

The last time we did the Music Badge I was able to buy these amazing kits from KIWI Crate that had everything the girls needed to earn the badge. I went to order them again for the next group coming up and they stopped selling them. It was pretty disappointing. But as a Leader I quickly adapted and came up with a few other ideas. Below is just a few of what we did at our last Music Badge meeting

First have some fun with duct tape. You could make just about anything with duct tape and you can do it using musical note designed tape to keep with the theme of your event and badge work, Here is one type you can get right from Amazon: Printed Duct Tape, Musical Notes

Make a Harmonica (using popsicle sticks)

What you need:

  • 2 Popsicle Sticks (I recommend the wide ones)
  • 2 Rubber Bands (I recommend grabbing som string as well)
  • A strip of paper the same size as the Popsicle Stick
  • 2 toothpicks cut the width or just wider than the Popsicle Stick

Putting it together:

  1. Put the paper strip in between the 2 popsicle sticks. Then wrap the rubber band around one end until it is very snug. If you want to use the string tie that as well after rubber band is put on. Slide the toothpick to the inside of the rubber band that you just added. Then put the last toothpick at the other end of popsicle sticks and wrap that side with the rubber band. Now you are ready to use your new harmonica.

Note Worksheet

Something I found online the girls enjoyed was the Note Worksheet. I explained to the girls that music is made by playing a combination of different sounds in an arranged pattern. These sounds are called notes, and last for different amounts of time depending on how they are arranged. Print the sheet below and do with your girls.

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.
