    Have you tried the programmes online? I'm sure I found something there. There's worksheets too where they've to spot the dangers

    Why not put some dangers round the hall and get them to carry out a safety inspection?

    Maybe put something in front of the fire door, get some wires and place them as if they are hanging out from the wall etc etc

    I assume you are doing this with cubs.

    National Grid sponsor an activity pack for this badge. Here's the link http://www.scouts.org.uk/sponsors/5/national-grid

    On programmes on a plate (backpack) you can download some cartoons with loads of "home safety" problems and use it as a quiz for them to colour in and spot the problems. There are 3 if I recall - one for a lounge, one for the kitchen and one for the garden.

    so if it was being done with cubs why is it in the beaver section? lol! (btw I do know it is for beavers)

    just do it round the hall or if you have your own hut try it in there.

    Rule 66. A map and compass offers no protection against getting horribly lost.

    Why not ue some of the info frin the Cub resource pack, show them the water stopcock in your HQ explain what it does, who to contact if they smell gas. Toys lying around theplace as trip hazards. Open windows/post or paper in letter box as an invite to burgulars.

    Beaver safety badge is a lovely one to do -

    Complete the following:
    Explain the Green Cross code
    Explain the Water Safety code
    Say what to do when approached by a stranger
    Identify possible dangers around the house and say what to do about them


    We covered it by splitting into Lodges and each lodge covering a different topic -
    Group one talked about water safety and looked through a RNLI sea safe booklet together and then gave them one to take home (ask at local RNLI for some - they are free)
    Group Two - went outside with an adult and practiced crossing the road - nothing beats doing it and being outside!
    Group three talked about stranger danger, and whom could be a stranger and made a poster of possible strangers
    Group Four - went into the kitchen and spotted the dangers we had set up before hand and then took home a poster to complete!

    week two we had a police officer in, who talked stranger dangers again, and about green cross code to reinforce it and we did a quiz...

    I have attached a few bits that might help.
