Senior Science of Style BadgeWhat is the purpose? Your girls will know the science behind makeup, perfume, fashion fabrics, and skin care products when they finish this badge. But you probably already know that, your probably here because your Senior Girl Scouts are ready to earn the Science of Style Girl Scout badge but you have no idea where to start.  Good news you came to the right place.

Today I will share a few great ideas that you can incorporate into your troop meeting. But if your like many leaders who just don’t have the time to plan out all the activities. I have done it for you in the Complete Science of Style Girl Scout Badge booklet.  Get your copy here

Have fun earning the Senior Science of Style using the booklet for each girl. I designed it to work for both individual girls or for a small or larger group.

Broke down into the 5 steps for the badge with activities for each step. While working though this badge the girls will learn how to make their own lip gloss, and edible face mask as well as learn about women fashion all the way back to 1920. They will learn more about which fabrics are better to keep you warm while performing a experiment, throughout the booklet you will also find additional games and activities to keep the girls moving and engaged through the process.

Additional Activities and Information

Here is a fun activity you could do with your girls while earning the Science of Style Senior Girl Scout badge. In step 3 they will be exploring the science behind hair products and perfume, in this activity have girls see how well they can smell different variety of perfumes.

What is that smell?

Things needed: Smells: perfume (up to you how many), some type of container to hold the smelly items, cotton balls

When doing some research I came across this very interesting article about how perfume was made. It could be a interesting read for your girls. “How Perfume is Made

Give a bunch of examples of clothes through the years, hair styles, and shoes and have girls put a timeline chart together 1920 1930 1940 so on and then have girls try to organize the fashion items where they below. Have them use the internet or fashion books to come up with the answers.

If preparing all that seems like a lot of work – check out the complete Science of Style booklet for Seniors in the shop. It has all the fashion items for he years figured out for you, a great list of fashion facts for each decade and a blank timeline for each girl to use to put these fashion items together on. All you need to do is print and cut out the examples prior to the meeting and your ready to go.  Get your copy here.

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.
