Australian Running Story

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Australian based story. Beaver scouts run on key words.


Story & one chair per lodge/team


Split colony into lodges/teams (max of 8) & space out down one side of hall. Place a chair opposite each team. Give each member of team a different key word. Leader reads out story when they hear their key word children run to and from their team around the chair. When Australia is read out all the team run round their chair. Helps if leaders sit on chairs and children are instructed to run in one direction around chair to avoid collisions! Each child will run 8 or 9 times. Quite exhausting, but fun!
