Here’s a new series for ya – 10x Programs! In this series, we are going to cover how to make existing badges 10 times more exciting OR how to create a program that doesn’t currently exist in the National Program Portfolio that is 10 times more exciting than anything you’re going to find in the toolkit, all while maintaining alignment with GSLE!
This week we are talking about sewing and embroidery! Are you or are your girls disappointed that there is NO sewing badge even for older girls? In this episode we are covering some ideas of how to create a 10x sewing and embroidery program for your girls!
