Collection of Drawings

By Brownie Troop 30474 earned the "My Best Self" badge

To earn this badge, the girls learned about keeping their bodies healthy and feeling great. As part of that they drew self portraits and wrote how each of them is UNIQUE. These are those portraits.

Part of keeping your body healthy is having a positive self-image. It is important that we know how we are all similar, but also that we celebrate everyone's uniqueness!
