If you have a Brownie troop they will love working on their First Aid badge. Your girls will learn how to handle and prevent injuries at Girl Scout meetings and take those skills with them no matter where they are. This is a great badge to start your Scout year with to make sure everyone has a understanding of what to do in emergency because no matter how safe you are there is always a chance of injury and it is better to have everyone prepared.

What do we do after your Brownie girls complete the badge?
Well of course give them the badge to display proudly on their vest, they earned it! Additionally If you are like many leaders we want to award our girls when they complete something even beyond just the patch. One great way to show achievement is with a certificate. Don’t worry you don’t have to make them, I found a resource that has done all the work for you and all you have to do is print them and customize the certificates with each girl’s name, date and troop leader.
