Lord Baden-Powell Facts Robin Activity

Hello Blogland!  Here is another activity to use with my Girl Guide Lapbook.  It is a Lord Baden-Powell facts activity.  The reason why I made it to look like a Robin is because LBP gave BP the nickname ROBIN.  He would even sometimes draw a robin  and use that as his signature.  He was quite an accomplished artist.  Did you know that he did the illustrations for his book Scouting For Boys?  I have a pdf version of the "Facts About Lord Baden-Powell"  activity for anyone who would like to use it. {I have two pdf versions...one is three pages...and a larger one for demonstration is 9 pages}

The Facts are typed on eggs..then attached with a paper fastener {brad} to the Robin to resemble the bird's body.  Pre punch the hole to prevent tearing.

 I chose 15 facts for this activity.  
You could choose less if you like or add more.

Yes! I have way too much fun 
making these activities!

  4. Hi! I'm with an independent co-ed Scout troop (www.5thbrooklynscouts.org) in the USA that is part of the Baden-Powell Service Association. Would you be willing to share this craft & the PDF's with us, too? The kids have to learn about BP as part of the Investiture badge, and this would be a great craft for that!

    Thank you so much!

    These look like a great way to get Girls excited about LBP and BP birthday and World Thinking Day. Is there a way for me to get the PDF to do this activity with my Guides at our next meeting this Wednesday night?

    I'm planning on a winter camp this year to fall on Thinking Day and want to get the girls learning all about it and all about Lord and Lady BP.

  23. Thanks Erin, I ♥ Lapbooking. It is such a fun way to gather the girls interest when learning about different topics. So many times in the past little papers and mini books had been sent home with them only to be lost forever...it seems they like making the lapbooks and tend to remember most of what they had learned. It does require prep work by the leaders but it is worth it!
