Tie-dyeing with natural vegetable dyes using COTTON material is great fun and can be your new upcycling hobby. Have a go at creating some wonderful designs using natural and recycled resources.
Download and print out our mascot onto paper or card.
Decorate her in any way you wish – for example use colour, paints, or collage.
We also need a name for our mascot, send in your suggestion to us, maybe it will be chosen!
Pampering yourself is a great way to relax and unwind. Take some time out of your day and focus on yourself. It’s a great way to look after yourself inside and out!
We all need to eat! You can protect our environment by eating foods that are better for the world around us. Everyone can do something to help! Why not make a start by growing your own herb garden?
You could join us on Friday 7th May or Saturday 8th or at any time during the Action ’21 festival and have a go at sleeping somewhere different in your home, it could be indoors or outdoors, in a tent or a homemade shelter. Perhaps you could sleep out under the stars?
Make a delicious fruity shake from your choice of fruits or even vegetables. Get creative and see what delicious drink you can invent for yourself!
“Don’t be a litterbug. Be a wildlife protector and pick up litter!”
It’s Action ’21 – the perfect time to take action and get tidying something. Why not spruce up a local park, beach or garden area somewhere. Make a difference somewhere near to you.
The original Guide promise has changed 12 times since the first promise in 1910. Our promise changes as we change with the world around us. What do you think your section promise should be in 30 years from now? That will be in 2051!
Nature is all around us, wherever we live, even in big cities. Being outside makes us feel good and helps us to be relaxed and stay healthy in body and mind. So why not have a go at making something for your own garden/balcony/communal area?
