4 Great Activities To Add to Your Troop Meeting To Earn The Senior Women’s Health Badge

Your Senior Scouts are young adults now, and as adult leaders we know how important good health is. This is a perfect time for your girls to learn more about women’s health and understand all the unique health issues that can affect us at every stage of our life. This post is all about the Women’s Health Badge for Seniors.  I will first share a complete activity booklet that has everything you need to earn the badge, then dig into a few other ideas I have gathered while researching on the web, that you may also find useful to use for your troop.

Women’s Health Activity Booklet

Before jumping into a few ideas, do you want to skip all the planning? If so, use the Women’s Activity Booklet to fulfill the requirements for this Senior Badge. This activity booklet will help your girls understand and explore woman’s health. The girls will put together their own personal magazine where they will get a better understanding of how to help women stay healthy, learn how fad diets and exercise have changed throughout the years, learn more about ways to help stay emotionally healthy, learn more about breast cancer awareness and in the end they will have a completed personal magazine that they can share with other women to help them be aware of ways to stay healthy. With a step by step activities, you can’t ask for a easier way to run your meeting. Learn more about this activity booklet and get yours today!

Learning More About Depression

I came across a great program from a company called Kids Health in the class room. It focuses completely on depression. If your girls are interested in learning more about depression. If any of their friends are acting irritable and moody or even withdrawn it could be a sign of depression. This program was designed for 9th to 12th grade kids. Click here for program

Have your girls put together a Flu Prevention Magnet to hand out to friends and family so everyone will have the facts front in center on their fridge.  Click here for some great facts to get you started. 

Health and Fitness Educational Activity Board Game Board Game

Part of being healthy is making sure your active, you are eating a balanced diet, avoid stress and make sure your mental health is intact. This board game will bring this all together for your girls. They will have fun competing against each other and not even realize they are learning at the same time.  While playing the game girls are focusing on winning the golden ticket to become the “Coach of the Game”. Your girls will learn how to be healthy and be active at the same time. They will be answering pop quiz questions and completing exercise challenges. It also includes a Food Scale Chart showing healthy food choices and Workout Poster to do even more exercises. Get the game here
