IGG Game - Australia - Squirrel in the Tree

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Arrange all but one ('it') of the Brownies in groups of three around the play area.
Two girls in each of the groups face in and hold hands high to form a tree.
The third stands inside the raised hands and becomes the 'squirrel.'
'It' wanders among the 'trees'.
At a signal, all the squirrels and IT must run to get into a new tree.
The one left out becomes IT. And the game continues.
Squirrels must find new trees, they cannot return to a tree they just left.
After several rounds, allow the squirrels and trees to change places.
