Home Safety Badge

Home Safety badge sheet
We use a very slightly adapted version of the National Grid badge pack for this badge. We complete most of the activities as bases for the Cubs to visit over the course of a two meetings. We also try to organise a trip to the fire station at about the same time. We ask that some of the sheets are completed at home.
