How to Earn the Girl Scout Bridging to Brownie Award

While the weather in many parts of the country is not feeling very "spring" like, the calendar says that it is. Cookie season is winding down and leaders are feeling a sigh of relief.

For those of you with second year Daisies, it is time to start thinking about bridging to Girl Scout Brownies.

My next few posts will be about this wonderful Girl Scout milestone, and this first one is how girls can earn the Girl Scout Bridging to Brownie Award

The bridging badge is one that needs to be earned, not just purchased when girls fly up to Brownies. There are two steps to earning this patch.

Step 1-Pass It On

Girls will share something fun about being a Girl Scout Daisy.

Step 2-Look Ahead

The girls will meet with a Brownie troop and learn something from them.

For more ideas and directions on how to earn the Girl Scout Bridging to Brownie Award, visit the Girl Scout website here. It has all the information you need to get your girls started on this important first step to bridging.

Girl Scout S'mores Campout Bear is Now Available at Build-A-Bear for a Limited Time Only

Updated October 2019

It's official! They are here! For a limited time only, your troop can go to Build-A-Bear and make the official Girl Scout S'mores Campout Bear. My troop went to Build-A-Bear in 2012, it was during November, the end of the year-long celebration of the Girl Scouts of the USA's 100th birthday. Troops like mine had flocked to the store to make these souvenir bears (my daughter still has hers), and about a year later finding them and the uniform became a challenge. 

Whether you want to take a troop trip or just want to buy your own daughter a special bear, here is what is available now. If you have a Cadette or older Scout besides your Daisy, you can only get that style of uniform online. Find it here.

There are also many other accessories for the bear, not just the uniform. You can find the complete line of Build-A-Bear Girl Scout items here.

If you are a first year Daisy leader, then your girls will definitely want the Daisy Build-A-Bear.

Official Daisy Girl Scout S'mores Campout Bear from Build-A-Bear is available for a limited time only.

For those of you who are bridging to Brownies, you may want to have the girls get both uniforms.

It's finally here! The official Girl Scout S'mores Campout Bear from Build-A-Bear.  Available for a limited time only.

Are you planning on taking your troop to Build-A-Bear?

Brand New Build a Bear Girl Scout S'mores Campout Bear Coming March 8th!

*This post contains affiliate links.

This is incredibly exciting for those of us who love Build-A-Bear! After years of having no Girl Scout line available, premiering this week is a new bear with uniforms for Daisy, Brownie, Junior and Cadette/Senior/Ambassador. 

Both of my daughters had Girl Scout field trips to Build-A-Bear. Many younger girls want to spend their cookie money on this experience. Something that they have now are parties geared for Girl Scout of every level. When booking your party, you can select which level of scouts your troop is so they can cater to their specific needs.

These bears and uniforms will be available for a limited time. If you want to guarantee your troop's turn to build this special bear, you can book a party to create your own bear or buy them online.
