As such it covers the UK, France, Austria, Hungary, Turkey, Italy, the Czech Republic and Poland. This challenge is designed to be flexible and you are encouraged to adapt it to suit your needs. Badges can be ordered at a cost of £1 per badge plus p&p. Suggestions for more detailed activities, downloadable craft templates, essential background information and relevant games will appear here over the next few months. UK guiding and scouting units can order the badges by downloading the form above. Others wishing to order badges, please email louise@ideas4kids.org stating where in the world you are (UK, Europe or outside Europe) and how many badges you would like.
