Make a Pretend-Play Sash with Badges

Surprise Me!

I am excited to be offering 30 days of fun crafts to keep kids active and entertained this summer! You won’t want to miss a day of these fun crafts for kids from some amazing bloggers! Please be sure to pay them a visit!


Hi everyone, I’m Jessica from the blog Zakka Life where I share about crafts, recipes and life.I’m happy to be back for another year participating in Craft Camp.I hope you will find inspiration from the craft I created for this year’s series.


These pretend-play craft badges and sashes will have your child crafting and playing for hours. My daughter made one inspired by the Fire Side Girls from Phineas and Ferb. She was so happy with her creation that she requested to wear it to school the next day!


Badge Template

Brown Paper Bag

Markers or crayons



1. Cut the bottom the bag off while keeping the rest of the bag intact. Fold flat as pictured above.

2. With a yard stick draw out the sash shape as shown.

3. Cut out on the lines you just made.

4. Flip inside out so none of the text shows on your sash.

5. Print out templates. Have children cut and decorate their badges anyway they like. Tape or glue on to sash and start playing.

Sash and Badge ideas:

  • Brownie/Girl Scouts and Boy Scout pretend play
  • Start a club
  • Turn your stuffed animals into a troop
  • Have children make badges for things they want to learn/do this summer.
  • For teachers – have each child in class make a badge for the birthday girl or boy that represents something they like about them. Then they get to wear it the entire day.
