Orient Express Challenge
Orient Express Challenge
This booklet sets out the Orient Express Challenge. It is based on the major European destinations of the Venice-Simplon Orient Express. As such it covers the UK, France, Austria, Hungary, Turkey, Italy, the Czech Republic and Poland. This challenge is designed to be flexible and you are encouraged to adapt it to suit your needs. Badges can be ordered at a cost of £1 per badge plus p&p. Suggestions for more detailed activities, downloadable craft templates, essential background information and relevant games will appear here over the next few months. UK guiding and scouting units can order the badges by downloading the form above. Others wishing to order badges, please email louise@ideas4kids.org stating where in the world you are (UK, Europe or outside Europe) and how many badges you would like. I will then let you know postage costs and how to order.
Promise Badge Fridge Magnet
Promise Badge Fridge Magnet
Cut a circle of magnetic craft foam in the colour of your promise badge. Use a pencil to draw on the trefoil (younger girls may need to use an adult prepared template). Go over your pencil markings with pva glue (you need a glue pen or pot with a small nozzle). Sprinkle silver or white glitter over your creation. Shake off the excess glitter and leave to dry.
