Virtual & F2F Activities

Some ideas from your fellow leaders of what worked best for them virtually and also going forward what would work best in socially distanced face 2 face

Activities
 
Zoom
Knife/ Fork/ Spoon – ask the girls to bring a knife, fork and spoon, play as for Rock/ Paper/ Scissors
Zoom
 
Number Bingo – girls draw a grid of 12 on paper, and choose 12 numbers between 11 and 20. Leader calls out numbers at random. Who can be first to score a line? Who will be first to shout BINGO?
Zoom
Hangman – played on the whiteboard
Zoom
Generation Game – played as Kim’s game, but leader passes a given number of objects slowly across her screen… then girls write down as many as they can remember (perhaps Rainbows could remember verbally?)
Zoom
Pillowcase Game – girls are asked to fill a pillowcase with 10 random objects. Leader then asks 10 questions (eg favourite thing to play with, favourite thing to eat, something to bring to Brownies) and girls each produce an object from their pillowcase as their answer. They may have to get very inventive with their last answers!
Zoom
Badges Bingo – girls draw a grid of 8 (Rainbows), 12 (Brownies) or 16 (Guides). Ask them to fill in squares with the names interest badges for their section. They can always refer to their Badge books of they can’t think of them all! Then call out interest badges at random, and see who is first to score a line, and who is first to shout BINGO!
Zoom
Pass a Pen – each girl has a pen, first girl passes it across the screen and names who she is ‘passing’ it to. Named girl then passes her pen across her screen and names another girl. Challenge the girls to remember who hasn’t had a go yet, and to choose them next. Play this a few times and see if you can improve your time for completing with every girl having had a go. Explain this game is about thinking of others, as well as having fun

No See Drawing – girls are told a simple object which they have to draw with their eyes closed. Have fun comparing results!

Wonky Donkey
A girl stands in a circle with her eyes closed and her ears covered with her hands.
The leader indicates to a girl in the circle and the girl makes a noise to “wake the donkey”
The Donkey then needs to point to who they think made the noise. If they get it right they can be the Donkey.
