• Ask everyone to write their name clearly in the middle of the sheet and lay their sheet name side up on the floor.
• The Leader could also participate in this exercise and should have a sheet too.
• When this has been done ask each person to go around the room from sheet to sheet and write something positive on each about the person named on the sheet. Stress that it should be a positive contribution.
• Encourage the Guides to write their comment and move from sheet to sheet rather than reading what others have written.
• Each person should write on every sheet
• When everyone has written on each sheet the owners should claim back their sheet and then allow some time to spend reading them.
• Ask each person to share one of the acknowledgements that they like in particular.
• Ask how it felt to say something positive about other people and how it felt to read positive things about themselves.
