Go for a ramble
Kit list for the girls to bring home at the end of the meeting the week before the ramble.
On day of ramble, sheets of paper, markers, crayons
Let the Ladybirds know they will all be going for a ramble the following week. Ask them do they know what they should bring e.g. type of jacket, footwear, sun cream.
Suggested items to include on kit list:
• Raingear (top and bottoms)
• Sit upon
• Sun cream
• Full uniform to be worn
• Runners or wellies
Divide the girls into pairs for the ramble, remember the ratio of 1 adult to 4 children. If walking on a local beach, get the girls to see how many different shells they can see. Depending on the weather and time of the year, you may let them paddle in the sea. If walking in a park, talk about Leave No Trace. Maybe get them to do a bark rubbing or give them sheets of paper and ask them to draw what they can see and hear, during their ramble.
What did they like about the walk? Would they go on a longer walk to somewhere different? Where could they go?
