The 2016 Summer Olympics comes just in time for the start of the scouting year. It’s a great excuse to get outdoors with games, sample activities and foods from around the world and celebrate the beauty of the world’s people.
For Brownies, the Olympics is a great reason to work on their Girl Scout Fair Play badge. One of the ways to earn the Fair Play badge is to learn about female athletes. Enjoy this free printable so your Brownie Girl Scouts can make their own Olympic Athlete Trading Cards.
