“Emergency Scavenger Hunt,” Friend, August 2018
The scriptures say, “If ye are prepared ye shall not fear” (Doctrine and Covenants 38:30). You can help your family prepare by collecting supplies for an emergency kit. Use this scavenger hunt to find items in your home. Ask a parent to help you add them to your kits.
Something sweet (hint: think fruit)
Something with meat
Something with veggies
Something for dessert
Something to read
Something to play
Something to hug
Something to open cans with
Something that gives light
Something to clean your hands with
As you gather your kits, make sure each person has water and food for three days, a blanket, and a change of clothes.
You could make this treat from food in your emergency kit. Be sure to get an adult’s help.
2/3 cup powdered milk powder mixed with 2 cups bottled water
1 small box instant vanilla pudding
1 box animal crackers or other cookies, crumbled
1 small jar raspberry jam
1 small can mandarin oranges (drain before using)
In a medium container with a tight-fitting lid, combine milk and instant pudding. Put the lid on tight and shake for about 3 minutes.
Layer the ingredients in a bowl in this order: half the cookies, 1 cup pudding, the jam, the rest of the cookies, the rest of the pudding, and the oranges.
