Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

The Create Air badge.

Over the time that the look wide create :air badge has been available the Guides have completed many sections using different things.

Some have colored and made mobiles with various pictures, made posters, used colored pictures of balloons, airplanes, made Bubbles, used bubbles themes and Air in different activities, events and camps.

Making things that fly our of different shapes of paper was interesting too.  When Guides Australia were challenged to assist with a Asia Pacific Region Service Challenge which involved fundraising so that the Guides in Kiribus could afford a bus – different activities came out through magazines.  Kiribus being a atoll in the Pacific there are always air currents. Using air currents was something that the Guides here in Australia could have fun learning about and understanding too.

MAKING BUBBLES

When you mix about 350 mls of dishwash with about 100mls of Glucose you come up with a pretty cool bubble making formula.

This evening at Guides there was very minimal air movement.  While waiting for the others to turn up the Guides went out with bubble wands, a dinner plate each and bubble wands.  They blew big bubbles that floated up and along to there hearts content. The laughter and squeezles was really encouraging to hear.  All the Guides and the new girl were having so much fun with this simple participtary game that age did not matter.

New skills of leadership and other physical skills were able to be applied as the Guides made and played with the bubbles.
