At a recent unit meeting, the 56th Guides learned how to make emergency heat/light sources using materials that can be found at home. In the case of a sudden emergency like a natural disaster, it would be great to have one of these Guides around to keep us warm and light our way.
Supplies included things like tuna tins, cardboard, and crayons — all things that most families are likely to have on hand. It was also a great day for upcycling, with girls using recycled materials like cartons from Girl Guide Cookie sales!
Whether it’s camping in the outdoors or at home during an emergency, it is always the Girl Guide way to “Be Prepared!”
