Blanket Maker Badge

“Kuddles” for Kids­

Giving blankets to hospitalized children

“Kuddles” for Kids is a project that was started by local middle schooler and Girl Scout Elise S. to teach people how to make fleece­ tied-blankets for hospitalized children, who may not have an object to comfort them while they are sick.

Recently, she did several presentations for young Girl Scouts about why the children need the blankets, and how to make them. After that, they helped tie blankets, all of which went to the children at the College Station Medical Center after being washed with hypo­allergenic detergent and placed in containers to keep the blankets clean and dust­ free.

You and your troop can earn the Blanket Maker Badge and participate in this great service project!
