  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    The activities in this Badge in a Bag are spot on for my 7th grader! She loved making the stepping stone the best!

  2. Rated 3 out of 5


    I was slightly disappointed with this badge set. First the tote bag is 8″ x 8″ – not shopping bag size for donating to any shelter. One of my cement bags was open, the stones were one color and very sharp. You have to be very precise on how much water to add. The cardboard for the posters are thin. You could get better, sturdier quality. I haven’t yet used the jiggle sticks so I can’t review on those…

  3. Rated 3 out of 5


    3/5 stars. I bought the sets for convenience but I still have to get items to complete the badge requirements. Tote bag included is small, you can fill it with a few tooth brushes and pastes for donation and that’s about it. I did add on the patches and they are cute.

    Most of the cadette badges are pretty dry. Research this, talk about that. the girls hate them. But these badge kits are great! The activities really make the difference and the price is good for what you get.

    This kit really made the GS Way come alive. It’s not perfect, but all of the girls enjoyed it thoroughly. I set up 5 or 6 stations, separated the kits into parts, and let the girls go around at their own pace. The garden stone was what excited the girls the most, but the mix was a little watery… you definitely need to use a little less than 1/2 cup of water. The tote bag was cute and I had the girls bring in sample size and sale products from home to fill the bags up. The only thing that I changed was the last one, because we had made many situpons in the past. I had the girls make a songbook instead, and then we had a singalong. It was the best GS Way badge meeting we ever had!
