Summer Badges

It has been so long since I have written! I am back (I think!) Life is so busy and fun! Since my last post, we have moved cross-country and loving our new area. We are surrounded by mountains, lakes, and evergreens. It’s been a bit of a crazy few years but we wouldn’t change a single thing!

This summer, our family is working on Summer Badges. A few weeks ago, I sat down and brainstormed all the activities I want our family to focus on. I divided it into four categories: academics, physical, outdoors, and skills. It helps me with my brainstorming. Below are all the badges and descriptions I came up with. Of course, customize it to your family. You may want to do more, less, or visit museums.

 My kids have already earned their hiking badge and are super excited to continue!

I am not a graphic artist and decided to turn to google to find summer badges that I could print and award my children. I found three websites of graphics that I loved.

Lifescouts

Camp Badges by The Girl Tyler

Symboly Gamification Icons

They are now all printed on cardstock and ready to be cut and given!

We decided to keep our badges on a white poster board hanging in our kitchen. My husband and I were discussing possibly having a fun family event when so many badges are earned. We haven’t really gotten that far in our thought process and are open to suggestions!

What are some fun summer activities you plan on doing?
