Brownie activities to try at home

Watch, learn and have fun!

We’ve brought some of our programme activities to life for you to try at home. You can use these videos in your unit meetings or explore them with friends and family. New videos added each month!


Have a go at creating your very own vortex air cannon and knock out the competition!

We’ve worked in partnership with the Royal Air Force to develop this super fun Magnificent machine, bringing the activity to life for you to try in your virtual unit meeting and at home.

Stay tuned to find out how to make this magnificent machine.

What you need:

  • A plastic bottle
  • A Balloon
  • Masking tape
  • Scissors
  • Paper cups

If you have a latex allergy, use a stretch material instead of a balloon.

If you’re a Brownie and working towards your programme awards, you can use this unit meeting activity towards your Skills For My Future theme award hours.

Just make a note of the activity name and your unit leader can record them for you. You’re welcome to have a go at any of the how to activities, but only activities from your section can count towards your theme award hours
