Earning the First Aid Patch

Our Early Bird Activity is the Manners Worksheet

Welcome Circle: Pledge led by "girl of the week".
We have a special guest today: a nurse!
We are going to earn our First Aid Patch today.
First, we need to talk about calling 911.
  • ·         What is an emergency?
  • ·         What do we need to know?
  • ·         When do we hang up?
Remember the last meeting when I asked you to thinking of a question to ask a nurse?
Let’s ask them!{They came up with great questions like "how long have you been a nurse?", "what was your worst sickness?", "did you ever deliver a baby?"}
Let’s practice how to treat simple injuries – buddy up:
  • ·         Cuts (they practiced cleaning owies on super balls)
  • ·         Sprained fingers (popsicle stick splints)
  • ·         Sprained wrists (using TP instead of ace bandages)
Craft time: Making first aid kits for our back packs...unless we find them at the dollar store already made up. Dollar Tree has them for a buck -- you can't beat that price! Our nurse used the extra time.

Snack Time: (bloody band aid cookies)

Clean Up Time!! Who remembers that song?
Brownie Scouts, Brownie Scouts, let’s tidy up the room! Brownie Scouts, Brownie Scouts, it’s time to go home soon.
Brownie Scouts, Brownie Scouts, we’re picking up our things! Brownie Scouts, Brownie Scouts, hear our voices sing!

Closing Ceremony:
  • Next meeting we will earn make TWO swaps…. One for March and one for April. We will talk about the cat show and make a special item to go with that Pet Patch!
  • Send them home with certification life savers!

  • Squeeze and goodbye sister scouts!
