Second Meeting - First Aid

"But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was:  and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, and went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him." Luke 10:33-34
For our second meeting we worked on a homemaking skill, First Aid.  One of our moms, Jenni, took the helm and did a fabulous job teaching our girls about first aid. 
There was a lot of information that needed to be covered from how to help someone who is choking to splinting a broken arm.  Jenni gave the girls handouts and bandages to practice what they learned.  It was fun to watch as the girls teamed up to wrap each other up in bandages.

As you can see, the girls had a good time learning about first aid.
