Home Safety Badge

Submitted by Cheddar Cubs

  • I created a WhatsApp group and invited all members
  • The activities were based on this home safety pack which is downloadable at the bottom of this page.

Description

The National Grid Home Safety resource pack, in the form of a poster, provides eight activities for Cub Scouts to complete. It includes a wordsearch, spot-the-error picture and some valuable home safety advice. the Serco Rail resource pack provides activities for Cubs to complete and gives advice around personal safety

Resources

  • Colouring pencils
  • Felt tip pens
  • Pens

Instructions

Ask the parents to either print out packs or download them so they can be worked on digitally.

There are 7 activities in this whole pack. We only used activity 1 this week. That was enough to fill an hour.

I posted a series of photo of the activities over the meeting and the youngsters posted pictures of what they were doing. There are a bunch of photos below of their handywork.

 

Activity 1

Fire safety in your house.

  • Ask the cubs to take a picture of their plug sockets
  • Discuss the need for tidy wires and for sockets to not be overloaded.
  • We discussed different types of fires and asked them to visually show their understanding. Some did this on the computer, some drew it by hand and sent a photo.
  • We talked about different fire dangers in the home.

 

Here are some of their pictures…
