Cooking, money management, careers and DIY – all a part of living smart

Develop your resilience and independence as you complete the live smart skills builder. Stage 6 is recommended for Rangers.

Here's a taste of the activities you can look forward to trying at this stage. Ask your leader about all the things you'll need to do to earn this badge.

Credit club - Don’t go crackers on credit! Spending more money than you have can be risky, so practise your borrowing skills and avoid the risks along the way.

Figure it out - How well do you know different jobs? Explore unusual careers and figure out the kinds of skills they need.

Flameless food - Get your chef hat on and cook up a treat. You might not have everything you need, but don’t let that stop you - you have some ravenous friends to feed!

Internet master - What would we do without the internet? No funny videos, no pictures of cats…what a nightmare! But for all the fun, the online world can be a dangerous place. Share advice on how to stay safe online. 

Mend, reuse, recycle, upcycle? - Why throw away something that’s broken when you can mend it and use it again? Put your repair skills to work, save your pennies and create something new all at once.
