Unlock your creative side with ideas, experiments and problem solving. Stage 2 is recommended for Rainbows and Brownies.

Here's a taste of the activities you can look forward to trying at this stage. Ask your leader about all the things you'll need to do to earn this badge.

Mime time - Take to the stage and use your imagination to bring a performance alive with props. The possibilities are only as endless as your ideas!

Move and shake - What do computers and dance routines have in common? Find out as you put on your dancing shoes and crack out your best moves… 

I have an idea - Are you ready to become an inventor? Be inspired by inventions you use every day to create something brand new and brilliant. 

Edible architecture - Get creative in this delicious construction challenge. Start with a foundation and work your way up to create some tasty towers…

Made to measure - Land ahoy! Try out with different sails to get your boat to travel as far as you can. Will it be plain sailing or a shipwreck? Time to find out.
