What is a Blue Peter Badge

Types of badges

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.


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.

Purple Fan Club badges are awarded for sending in a review of a Blue Peter episode.


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.

To gain free entry, badge holders with a valid badge card must be accompanied by a full paying or concessionary adult. If a paying adult is accompanied by up to three children with badges and valid badge cards, free entry will be given for all children.


The saving are definitely worth putting some effort in. Get your child to hand write the letter but ensure the Name & Address are clear perhaps write them yourself.

Send photos of your child doing the task they are writing about or send a photo of what they have made something
