Badges at Home
We will try and work through many of the Cub badges during our evening meetings, but there are some that are more easily achieved outside of the Scout Hut.
If you want to look at the requirements for any badge then you can do so online on the Scout Association website here: Cub Badge Requirements, or by purchasing a Cub Powerpack book from the Scout Shop.
You can also check your Cub Scouts badge progress using the My.Scout facility, if you have not been mailed your login to My.Scout then please let us know by e-mailing [email protected]
Below is a list of the badges (or parts of badges) we feel the Cubs can best achieve at home.
- PARTS 1,2 &3: Download and complete the worksheet to help you work through the majority of the badge, if you have tried new sports outside of Scouting then please put the details in, if not then leave this part blank and we will try some new sports at Cubs.

- Animal Carer – PART2 & Community – PART3: Take care of a pet for a number of weeks and keep a record of what you have done, if you wish you can use the record sheet below or make your own pet diary.

- Animal Carer PART 1: If your Cub has visited a Zoo or Wildlife park during their time as a Cub Scout then please let us know we may get them to say something briefly to the rest of the pack and if they have any photos or memento’s of their day if they could bring them in that would be great.
- Animal Carer – PART 7: Make a poster about Dangers in the Countryside that threaten wildlife.
- Animal Carer – PART 6: If the Cub belongs to a Society or has adopted an animal during their time as a Cub then please bring in evidence of this into Cubs.
- PARTS 1,2,3 & 4: This is a good badge to entirely complete at home. The Cubs should write a list of six books that they have read recently including the name of the author. They should also write a short piece about how to care for books, how to use an encyclopedia, atlas and atlas and finally explain how library is organised into fiction and non-fiction.
- PART 4: Cubs should plan and cook a 2 course meal, providing evidence of what they have done at the Cub meeting the following week, evidence can also be e-mailed to the Cub Leaders and will ask the Cub to give a quick description of what they did when the badge is presented. This should hopefully also pass parts 1,2 and 3 of the Home help badge.
- PARTS 1,2,3 & 4: Cubs are always welcome to bring in their collections of stamps, coins, rocks, etc and display them in an interesting way. They should be prepared to answer about their favourite item, the first item, how long they have been collecting and possible other questions about their collection! Hopefully they will get to see another Cubs collection to pass part 4 of the badge.
- PART 4: Make a safety poster about being safe as either a pedestrian or a cyclist to complete part 4 of the Cyclist badge this will also complete part 6 of Road Safety badge.
- ALL PARTS: Alternatively to gain the entire badge Cubs can bring in proof they passed Bikeability level 2 or 3.
- PART 2: If the Cubs help with any painting of walls at home using rollers and paint brushes then please take photos and either bring them in or e-mail us the photos.
- This entire badge will need to be completed outside of Cubs please click on the badge image to go to the requirements badge. As soon as we convince the Scout Group to buy us a horse we might be able to do this ourselves!
- Cubs can come and tell the pack about their hobby and complete the entire badge, please bring in anything to do with the hobby that can be shown to the rest of the pack. If the hobby happens to be sport based or a martial art there are separate badges for Sports Enthusiast and Martial Arts. (see below)
- PARTS 1,2 & 3: Hopefully they will be completed whilst cooking a meal for the Chefs badge!
- PARTS 4,5,6,7 & 8: Please download the record sheet below and witness that your Cub has completed the tasks!

- ALL PARTS: This is more for a sport that the Cub follows but does not particularly participate in, a previous example of this was American Football.
- Click on the Badge logo to take you to the list of the requirements, it’s likely that Cubs should be able to complete Level one of Swimming. The best option with this would be to print of the list of requirements and get a swimming teacher to sign to say they have completed them.
