Paper Chains

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Beavers/Cubs work in Lodges/Sixes to create the longest possible paper chain


* Lots of pre-gummed paper strips (ideally a different colour/pattern per Six)
or Lots of sheets of paper, celotape and scissors!


Give each Lodge/Six a stack of paper strips. Tell them that they have a set amount of time to make the longest possible paper chain - it only counts if it is assembled into a single chain at the end of the time. They earn lodge/Six points based on the total length of the longest chain they create within the time.
