Aim of Badge

To appreciate the necessity of caring for the environment

This Badge has 5 options of which 5 must be completed


There are two ways to do this craft.
• One is to trace the girl’s hand onto paper and cut out the prints.
• The second is to make paint handprints on the paper, let them dry and cut those out.
The project can be done in teams of two or three children. This is especially helpful if you are tracing the hands instead of making paint prints. The girls can trace each other’s handprints.
Make twelve handprints (4 of each colour).
Cut out the prints and glue to form a wreath.
You can decorate the wreath further with stickers (like flowers, birds, butterflies -- anything nature related).
Print one of the templates for the centre of the wreath.
Colour the template piece, if necessary and cut it out.
If using the 'message' template, finish the sentence: 'The earth is worth protecting because…'
Use a piece of thread to hang the template piece in the centre of the wreath.
