Squirrels All About Me Challenge Award

Squirrels All About Me Challenge Award

All About Me badge

There’s no one else who’s exactly like you. Think about what makes you unique, learn about the people around you, and set yourself a challenge.

How to earn your badge:

  1. We all have different interests and talents: what are yours? Create something that shows who you are, where you live, and what you like to do.

    You could draw, make a mud statue, tell a story, make something on the computer, or find another imaginative way to share what’s important to you.

  2. Helping other people is a kind thing to do. Think about the people who are there to help us when we need it, then choose some helpful things that you could do for others. Talk to a leader about a kind thing you’d like to try and give it a go.

    You could think about the people you live with, people whose job is to help you, or people at nursery, school, or Scouts. What are these people good at? Can you help others in a similar way? You could help out at home, help a new Squirrel to join in, or teach someone something new.

  3. When we learn to do new things (by ourselves and with others) we become more independent and feel more confident. Choose something you can do independently to take care of yourself, talk to an adult about what you want to learn, then try it out.

    You could brush your own teeth, wash your hands often, tidy up after you’ve finished playing, or set the table ready for a meal. 

  4. Setting yourself a challenge can help you learn things and build skills. Think of a challenge you’d like to try, decide how long you want to do it for, and get stuck in.

    You could:  

    • Try something new  
    • Wear your Scout scarf to Squirrels every week  
    • Go on a trip   
    • Take care of something like a plant or a pet 
    • Collect something.

April 2024.
