Try-its, Badges, IPs & Patches

Here is what other Councils have put together...why start from scratch as well as the standard Try-its, Badges & Interest Projects. (These can all still be earned but they are around only as long as the patches themselves are available at both the council & national level)  These are being phased out and the new "Badges" will be phased in.
Activity Patches can also  be earned, these can be worn  on the back of the vest  or sash.  Listed below are possible options, your choice.

Sahuaro GS of Southern AZ Council’s Quilt-it
Quilt-It! projects provide fun and creative ways for Brownies, Juniors, and Cadette/Seniors to learn basic quilting skills. The Try-It, Badge, and Interest Project were developed by members of the Tucson Quilters Guild Education Committee.
The Sahuara GS Council has processed badge orders for over 350 girls from 20 states!  Attractive quilts are produced, with both the scouts and their leaders enjoying the work.
Elementary skills are taught, so that all work can be completed by hand sewing and quilting. Sewing machines are an option for more advanced girls.

2011 & 2012 Girl Scouts Global Action Awards
The Girl Scouts Global Action award, developed in partnership with the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), is an exciting and enriching way for Girl Scout Daisies to Ambassadors to participate in realizing the United Nations' Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) which aim to reduce extreme poverty and impact major world concerns by 2015.
By earning the Global Action award, girls can learn, in a fun and educational way, about serious global issues affecting girls, young women, and their communities. Each Girl Scout who completes activities will join in WAGGGS' international movement of 10 million girls who together are sowing the seeds of social change.
The Global Action award is designed to complement GSUSA's national leadership journeys and reinforces the same leadership goals of: discovering oneself and one's values; connecting via teamwork with other members and by reaching out to the local and global communities; and taking action to improve the world.
I Love Fashion - you can create or embelish clothing to make it your own
Mom & Me - you can have a mom & daughter workshop, a great idea for the younger girls.
Arts & Crafts -  Sewing and quilting are definately an art form...just check out the quilts and garmets at the International Quilt Festival.
Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas & Holiday Projects - make something for the season/holiday for kids in the hospital or others in the hospital (especially the Veterns Admin. Hospital) or a nursing home
Recycle - do a project that involves using old jeans are always a great source of fabric
