We’ve got 17 exciting Paw Print activity packs to help you to get Growing Up Wild. You can take your pick from the list of suggested ideas in each Paw Print, which may have come from existing resources or choose your own activity. Remember that Growing Up Wild is designed to get our girls outdoors and into their natural environment – so discuss with your girls to decide how many activities they’d like to do! Don’t forget the badges can be achieved by participating in any activity, so check out all the Paw Prints below.
