The girls of troop 163 are spending hours painting a mural at Wausau's Tyler's Home for Kids. The respite facility is for children who have disabilities or other special needs. The girls say they decided on the art project, because they thought it would brighten up the room.

"I think it's really fulfilling for them because of instead of just seeing a white wall, they can see all kinds of pictures on it," said Brittany Wagner. "The first one from left to right is like spring, then summer, and then fall and then winter, so it shows the changes between the four seasons."

The girls have been planning the project since September. After they finish the mural, they'll be eligible to receive the bronze award, the highest level of achievement for middle school-aged girl scouts.
