Play along at home by printing out iron-on badges on your inkjet printer. Then, as you earn badges, iron them onto a t-shirt, sash, tote bag, or whatever cloth apparel you'd like.
Another idea is to print them out onto regular paper and
tack/tape them to a corkboard, refrigerator, etc.
And, artists of any age can print out the Connect Your Summer coloring book. When you finish coloring it, bring your best page to the Reference Desk so we can show it off!
