Brownie Girl Scout Bugs Badge Ideas: Kids Cooking & Crafting Bugs Projects

Summer is a great time for kids to explore some of the creepy crawlers in the ground and in the air!

We have a few fun craft and cooking idea for your Girl Scout Brownie troop to work towards your Bugs Badge.  You don’t have to be a Girl Scout to enjoy these activities.  And hey if you have a little boy he may love these projects too!

Read below to get some ideas and inspiration to work towards the Bugs Badge.  We recently used these awesome ideas in our recent Stuffed Animal Sewing/Crafting Cooking Brownie Bugs Badge Summer Camp here in Chantilly, Virginia!

Edible Dirt Worm Pots:  Who doesn’t love this timeless cooking craft?!  We found these brown pots (without the holes in the bottom yay!) at the Dollar Tree in a pack of 4 for $1!  They are stocked in Spring and Summer in the garden section.
