Already logged in? Head to the badge zone to check your status and see if there are new badges waiting to be earned. We add new ones every few weeks!

Badges are achievements that you earn for being active on the Nat Geo Kids website. Some are easy to get—you'll receive one just for signing up!—but others take more time to earn and are worth more points.
See below to find out how you can sign up for badges. It won't take you more than a few minutes, plus it's free!

WHY SHOULD I SIGN UP TO EARN BADGES?

 

Because collecting things is fun! You'll be able to store all of your earned badges in your Badge Zone and brag about them to your friends. Plus this helps you find all sorts of cool stuff you may not have seen on our site.

I'M SOLD! WHERE DO I SIGN UP?

Awesome! Go to the Nat Geo kids home page click the Join button in the top right corner of the page. Then create a user profile—it won't take you more than a few minutes.

I ALREADY HAVE A NAT GEO KIDS ACCOUNT—DO I NEED TO SIGN UP AGAIN?

Nope! Be sure you're logged in and go here to start earning badges.

I'VE ALREADY EARNED ALL OF THE BADGES THAT ARE AVAILABLE. WILL YOU BE ADDING MORE BADGES LATER?

Yes—check your Badge Zone often to find out if new badges have been added.

 


MY BADGES ARE NOT SHOWNG UP ON THE SITE! WHAT'S GOING ON?


Unfortunately we are currently experiencing a technical issue with our badging system. We are aware of the issue and our team is working to resolve the problem as soon as possible.

 

I HAVE A LOT OF BADGES ON MY SHOT. CAN I ADD THESE TO THE NEW BADGES I'M EARNING ON THE KIDS SITE?

First of all, congrats on the My Shot badges! We're working on joining our two badging systems, but right now you won't be able to add your My Shot badges to the ones on this site.
