Whether it's Beavers, Cubs, Scouts or Explorers who are hoping to whip up a storm in the kitchen - we've got you covered! Take a look at these fun ideas to achieve Cook or Chef Activity Badges!

Beavers – Cook Activity Badge – and Cubs – Chef Activity Badge 

Beavers need to cook three dishes to achieve their Badge, whilst Cubs need to make a two course meal. We love all of the recipes here which are easy enough for little ones little to lead on! Whether they go for salads, sandwiches or pasta sauce, there’s something for everyone. 

Take a look at this great checklist of ways to stay safe in the kitchen. Perhaps your Colony or Pack might like to make posters describing what they’ve learnt about how to stay safe.

There’s some great information here about how to teach healthy eating. There are lots of links to choose from, so you’re sure to find something to captivate your section! 

Scouts – Chef Activity Badge 

There are some great meal planner ideas here. Whether your Scouts want to buy one or make their own as they plan their meals for camp, they’re sure to find something here. 

If you need some inspiration, take a look at our blog on winter warmers. All of these recipes can be cooked indoors or outdoors – perfect for the Chef Activity Badge! The Badge can be earned twice, depending on where your Scouts decide to cook. 

Explorers – Chef Activity Badge 

The information here about food storage is really clear and easy to understand. Your Explorers might like to quiz each other, or use the information to play a game of two truths and a lie! 

For budding bakers in your unit, all of these recipes are easily achievable, although remember – no packet mixes allowed!
