Squirrels Local Superhero Activity Badge

Squirrels Local Superhero Activity Badge

Local Superhero badge

Superheroes don’t just exist in books, comics, and films. Real-life superheroes are all around us, doing great things to help people every day.

How to earn your badge:

  1. There are lots of local superheroes doing great things near where you live. Find out who they are and what they do to help.

    Think about people who have a different background to you too – superheroes come in lots of different shapes and sizes. You could talk about doctors, nurses, firefighters, teachers or postal workers. You could visit where they work, ask them to visit, try a video call, draw pictures of them, or dress up like them. 

  2. Anyone can be a superhero if they use their skills to make the world a better place. Design your superhero costume, choose your powers, and think about how you’ll use your powers to help other people.

    You could draw a picture of yourself as a superhero, edit a photo on a computer or tablet, or dress up. You could use your powers to clean up rubbish and help the environment, make food for people who are hungry, or look after people to help them feel better. 

  3. Now it’s time to put your superpowers to good use. Work with your group to make a difference in your local area.

    You could plant some flowers for everyone to enjoy, help people to recycle, or help a local charity.
