Scout Challenge - Week 6
First Aid. Be Prepared!
Germ Demonstration
Put water in a bowl and add glitter (or coffee grounds) to the top. Just enough to cover the top. Place your hand in the bowl and see how the glitter or coffee grounds stick to your hands, that represents the germs!
Wash your hands afterwards for a full 20 minutes - sing happy birthday twice.
Does your home have a first aid kit? Check what supplies you have and make a list of what you may need to purchase. 
Make sure you have all emergency numbers on your refrigerator (or somewhere else in the house that is easily accessible)
911 - Poison Control - your closest police station’s non-emergency number - 
Home Fire Safety - fire chief
Make a Fire Drill for your house - Tornado Drill too, and practice it. 
Last weeks challenge was so popular that many wanted a video so Scouts can learn how to plant.
