Time needed: 1–2 hours
If you’re caught in a natural disaster or are in a remote location, you may have to improvise as you offer help to others. In this activity, you’ll use common materials to make splints.
Research how to make splints from everyday objects. Then ask your family to help you practice this skill in real life. Notice which objects are easiest to make into splints and which are the hardest. Ask your family to give you feedback about how well they think you did.
Troop Leaders: The instructions for all badge steps are available free of charge in your Girl Scout Volunteer Toolkit.
