There are eight badges you can earn...
Below is a list of all the Blue Peter badges you can apply for.
Blue badges are awarded for sending in interesting letters, stories, makes, pictures, poems, good ideas for the programme, and for having appeared on Blue Peter.
Green badges are awarded for sending in letters, pictures and makes that are about the environment, conservation or nature.
Silver badges are awarded to Blue badge holders who go on to make an extra effort. For example, if you won a Blue badge for an interesting letter or email, you could win a Silver badge by sending us something different such as a make, picture or a poem.
Fan Club badge
Purple Fan Club badges are awarded for joining the Blue Peter fan club and answering some questions about the show and the website. Print off the Purple badge form, fill it in and send it in!
The Music badge is a very special badge, designed by superstar Ed Sheeran. It's awarded to those who show off their passion for music by learning a new instrument or being part of a musical performance.
Orange badges are given to winners and runners up of Blue Peter competitions. To have a chance of winning one of these badges you have to enter a Blue Peter competition, which only run during certain times in the year. For more information on competitions and whether a competition is open or not, visit the competition page.
Gold badges are very rare indeed. Each year only a few are awarded in exceptional circumstances for outstanding achievements, for example being solely responsible for saving someone's life, or showing amazing and unique bravery, courage and citizenship. Apply for a Gold badge. (You must already have at least one of the other badges).
