What Are Fun Patches?
Fun Patches are a fantastic way for Girl Scouts to be creative and show off their pride during activities and local events. Girl Scout Fun Patches (also known as Custom Event Patches) are different from Girl Scout Badges. Unlike badges, a scout does not need to master a new skill in order to earn a Fun Patch. For this reason, Fun Patches are not worn on the front of the vest or sash. Instead, they may be applied on the back, on a jacket, or on a brag blanket. As you will see below, Fun Patches can be designed by troop leaders, scouts, or parents to commemorate just about anything! Most of the time, Fun Patches are awarded after an activity or event is completed—but they can certainly be distributed just for fun as well!
How Girl Scout Fun Patches Are Used
- Oftentimes, if your troop wants to do an activity that isn’t a part of the Girl Scout Journeys program, a Fun Patch can be created.
- Fun patches could be earned during troop meetings for acts of community service such as a canned food drive, bake sale, or other event.
- These Custom Event Patches might be distributed by troop leaders on a field trip.
- Many times, Fun Patches are available for activities scouts do without the whole troop. For example, local sporting events may have scout nights for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts where a Fun Patch is given to each scout who wears their uniform to the game.
- Corporations such as Home Depot might hold an event for patrons to participate in different woodworking crafts. In fact, Home Depot often gives out their own patches as part of the program.
- Fun Patches are perfect for popular events such as Cookie Kickoff Parties, Thinking Day, Bowling Leagues, Spring Campouts, Summer Day Camps, Residency Camps and more!
