New and Improved!
Serenity Badge in a Bag

Your girls will sit back, relax and enjoy this relaxing nature-themed bag! 

Get it while you can! This "Bag" is being discontinued to make room for new "Badge in a Bags". The current Junior Stress Less badge is being retired by GSUSA. Make sure to pick up your badges from the council store while they still have availablity.

LESS THAN 40ยข PER PROJECT                Kit contains supplies for a maximum of 12 scouts to do six activities. Order a "bag of extras" for troops up to 16. Order 2 full bags for troops of 17 or more.

Even kids get overwhelmed by stress in their busy lives. This "bag" will help them learn to manage stress in 6 fun ways. (Colors and styles may vary from photo shown.) If you are doing the "Stress Less" Junior Badge here is our recommendations for fulfilling the requirements.   Of course, it is not meant to infringe upon your own interpretation of the badge or the requirements printed in the badge book.

Requirement 1 - Create a Personal Stress Kit
Decorate a colored paper bag with silk flowers and leaves to keep your serenity items. Project will take about 5 minutes to Complete. Allow extra time to discuss the what the girls will put in their box. You'll need your own hot glue. Kit includes bags and flowers. (Bag color may vary from color shown.)

Requirement 2 or 3 - Write it Down
Girls decorate a pen to journal or record their feelings throughout the day. Pen, flowers, green vinyl tape are included. Girls will need their own paper and you will need scissors to complete the project. Allow about 15 minutes to make the pen plus time to discuss writing for relaxation during your meeting.

Requirement 4 - Do for Others
Make a tray favors to give to send to the nursing home or hospital. Kit includes 36 printed cards and flowers for your group to share. (If ordering a bag of extras, there will be no additional flowers or cards for this project.) Allow about 15 minutes during your meeting to make this project.

Requirement 6 - Listen to Nature Music
Serenity CD includes about 30 minutes of assorted nature sounds. Instruct your girls to sit or lay down quietly with their eyes closed. Which sounds are the most soothing? Do some girls prefer the ocean sounds while others prefer the sounds of the woodlands or the morning birds? Project will take about 30 minutes if you are listening to the whole CD.

Requirement 7 - Pass it On
What other ways are there to relax? Making crafts and watching nature are both great ways to de-stress. Make a bird house to hang outside. Maybe you'll get to see birds building a nest inside. Kit include a wooden birdhouse to paint. Assembly is easy and takes no special tools or supplies. You will only need paint and brushes. Allow about 30 minutes during your meeting to make this project.

I found "Badge in a Bag" to be an excellent value and a great time saver. I have purchased several of them and save them for meetings when I don't have a lot of prep time in the week to get ready for my girls.
