Brownies learn to prevent and treat bee stings, bruises, cuts and scrapes, poison ivy and oak, sunburns, and tick bites by referring to a badge-specific first aid guide and using pretend paper first aid kits as they rotate through six first aid situation stations featuring children with various minor and outdoor injuries. Afterward, Brownies build mini first aid kits to take home and use during real-life first aid situations. They conclude by acting as first aiders to treat faux cuts with real medical supplies.
This printable paper activity pack is designed to help fulfill Brownie First Aid badge - Steps 3, 4 and 5.
"Prevent & Treat: First Aid Situation Stations" may be worked within the troop setting, or by a single girl at home with an adult helper to prepare the materials, serve as a partner, and provide support, as needed.

* First aid kit supplies listed are per girl. One extra of the first five supplies per girl, plus one extra tube of triple antibiotic ointment per troop to share, is needed to practice treating cuts.
Triple antibiotic ointment, book rings for first aid guide, and other items may be purchased from Dollar Tree or similar store. Also, look for small tubes of triple antibiotic ointment in large bins of mixed discount medical supplies at Walmart. I bought our troop's for .88-cents a tube. Soap dishes in the travel section were less than a dollar each. Look for durable plastic zipper bags in the school supply section (e.g. zippered pencil pouches). Be sure to test the sizes of your first aid supplies to ensure that they fit in your chosen containers.
