Brownies logoIn 1914, Lord Baden-Powell formed a group for girls called Rosebuds. The group was renamed Brownies the following year, after the girls complained they didn’t like being called Rosebuds. The name ‘Brownies’ comes from the story The Brownies by Julia Horatia Ewing, written in 1870. A version of this story is still used today to teach girls that they can be helpful.

Brownies become a member of a six such as Elves, Leprechauns, Pixies, Gnomes  Imps, Sprites, Badger, Fox, Mole, Squirrel, Hedgehog and Rabbit.
