MaryJane's Farmgirl Sisterhood

Earning Farmgirl Sisterhood Merit Badges

Each Other

15. I Should Have Been in the Movies


  • Either by choosing a new badge that you want to apply for, or by choosing a previous badge that you have been awarded, write down all the steps you took to receive the badge. Gather all the needed materials and place on a table for easy access.
  • Sit in front of a mirror and rehearse teaching the steps that a sister would need to take to achieve this badge. Repeat your rehearsals until you feel confident in the process.
  • If this is a new badge, you will want to go over all the required steps for that badge until you feel confident in that process as well.
  • Write down your experiences in a journal — why you chose this badge and what you learned by watching yourself.


  • With materials in hand, get a live audience to practice with. This audience can consist of friends, family, kids, co-workers, or your local Farmgirl Chapter. Once they have seen your presentation, ask them for some constructive criticism. Practice in front of them a couple of times until all the kinks are worked out.
  • Write down any feedback you receive in your journal.


  • Now it’s time to get those cameras rolling. Either film yourself or have someone assist you in filming your rehearsed presentation about earning a merit badge.
  • Share it with a friend or family member.
