What our 4–7-year-olds do, wear and the badges they earn
Rainbows welcomes all girls from 4 to 7 years old for play, learning and tons of fun in a colourful, safe space.
She’ll laugh, sing and make a happy mess (and help clear it up!) as she chooses her way through our programme of activities. She’ll have plenty of magic moments: she might become a time traveller, an animal tracker, a pop singer, a stargazer. It’s a wonderful world of adventure, week after week, just for her.
What do girls do in Rainbows?
Rainbows follow our programme. In unit meetings, they do fun activities, play games and earn skills builder badges, all while being supported by our trained volunteers.
Your child could get skills builder badges in themes such as camping, communication and first aid. And if she wants to take guiding home, there’s lots of interest badges to do in between unit meetings, like the book lover badge, construction badge and helper badge.
And as well as going to events planned locally and by her unit, she could also go to our fun-filled, circus-themed extravaganza, Magic and Mayhem and make friends from around the UK.
What Rainbows wear
We encourage members to wear a uniform to show they’re part of the Girlguiding family. Rainbows wear a top and a pair of bottoms.
Badges can be attached to her uniform – the promise badge, which she’ll get after making her Rainbow promise, should be on the left-hand side and all other badges can be attached where she chooses.
What’s after Rainbows?
After Rainbows, she can move onto Brownies, our section for girls aged 7-10, for nonstop fun, learning and adventure.
