Making Links of Unity ball
Cut out the strips and swap with other Guides to get a mixture of colours for their ball
Fold one strip in half to find the middle. Poke a small hold through the centre of all six strips
Poke a small hole at each end of the strip –about 2cm from the end
Poke a split pin through the centre holes and flatten the legs of the split pin to hold the strips in place
Fan the strips out in a circle
Curve the strips up one by one and poke the second split pin through the hole at the end of each strip
Once you have all the strips on the second split pin, flatten it’s legs
You have now made your ‘Links of Unity’ ball
