Making sea creatures from old plastic items was part of the fun as girls from The 1st Little Downham Rainbows took part in the national FutureGirl event.
The girls took part in the event, which aimed to encourage them to discuss the plastic-related problems that the environment faces, as part of their work on recycling.
The Rainbows were involved because they are part of GirlGuiding UK (which is open to girls ages five to seven.
Janine Pettifor, unit leader, said: "As the youngest part of Girl Guiding UK the girls could earn badges and this challenge was a national event called FutureGirl.
"The sea creatures the girls made those that are most affected by plastic discarded in the sea."
