The Brownie uniform has evolved over the past 100 years. At the beginning several uniforms were trialled in brown and blue before in the 1920s a brown cotton dress with chest pockets was fixed upon, to be worn with a brown tie. The tie changed from brown to yellow but a major change to Brownie uniform came in the 1960s when the Brownie dress was changed to a blue pinafore followed by a blue dress in the 1980s. In the 1990s the uniform changed again to a yellow sweatshirt and navy tracksuit with a navy sash and neckerchief.

Examine the photographs of past uniforms.
Colour and cut out the Brownie and her four uniforms. Make a timeline of her uniforms.
This could be completed and displayed as a six.
