For this meeting, we invited a local entomologist from the area to come and speak with the girls about bugs! Our wonderful visitor oversees a large butterfly habitat and brought some specimens (all of which died of natural causes -- no pins in them), as well as several very interesting (and creepy-looking) bugs!
The girls had a great time learning all about butterflies and other insects. And the best part? I didn't have to search for bugs during winter. ;)
At the end of the meeting the girls thanked our visitor, and we gave her a box of Samoas as well. :)
And one of our moms made these delicious cupcakes for our meeting. The girls LOVED them. They were delicious!
Here's the recipe. (Thank you, insidebrucrewlife for the wonderful recipe!)
EDIT: Yes, there are loads of things you can do for this badge. We just chose to bring in an outside expert, because it was that time of year where frankly, we all needed a bit of a break. Google is your friend. :) Search for more suggestions.
