Brownies play a relay game which relies on all members of the team working together.
Brownies line up in their sixes one behind the other. The first Brownie in the line holds the long balloon between her legs.
The Brownie at the back of the line runs to the front to face the first Brownie. She takes the balloon between her legs and turns so she is now the front of the line.
The next Brownie at the back runs to the front to take the balloon and so on until the whole team has reached a pre-appointed finishing spot.
Discuss what worked well for each six and what could have made it better for them. Discuss the importance of listening to each other, taking turns, co-operating and compromise. Try running the relay again to see if the teamwork techniques differ or improve.
