3 short games to demonstrate various disabilities
Ball with Bell
Start off by discussing various disabilities.
1. Blind Walk
Place some round mats on the floor to act as 'bombs'.
Put the Beavers in pairs. One ties their scarf over their eyes, so they are blind.
The second guides the blind beaver past the obstacles to the end of the hall and back.
2. Blind HandBall
You need a foam ball with a bell inside!
Split the Beavers into two small teams, and arrange them at opposite ends of a small room (or one end of a big one).
Each Beaver must be blindfolded with their scarf.
The Beavers have to push the ball round and try and score a goal, being guided to where the ball is by the sound of the bell inside
You need soft rubbery balls (that won't bounce, but will roll) - a white 'jack' and equal numbers of two other colours, e.g. blue and red.
Divide the Beavers into two teams and share the balls out evenly.
Sit the Beavers on a row of chairs - they must not move from their chairs, which simulates being confined to a wheel chair
Leader places the jack somewhere in front of the Beavers (maybe a few feet away, maybe more), roughly equal distance from each Beaver.
Beaver with red ball throws/rolls their ball to get it to stop as close to the jack as possible
Beaver with blue ball does same.
Then, the team that is not closest to the jack throws a ball. Repeat, until all balls are used. Score one point for the closest set - so if Red have the first two closest, then they score 2 points.
