DUTY TO OUR COUNTRY GAME (see story overleaf)
1. Divide the Brownies into two teams.
2. The teams are lined up and seated facing each other.
3. Give each Brownie a character from the story, and they have to do the corresponding action every time their character is mentioned:
• President – stand up straight and wave
• Garda – turn around on spot saying ‘nee nah, nee nah’
• Ball – Do little jumps on the spot
• Cat – stretch and say meow
• Duck – flap arms and say quack quack
• Dog – paws up in front and say woof woof
• Ladybird – Make a rainbow with arms
• Brownie – Make a big smile (using your hands either side of face)
• Guide – stand up straight and make Guide sign
• Fireman – hose fire and say shhhhhhh
• Soldier – stand to attention and salute smartly
• Sailor – turn wheel of ship and sway while saying “hard to starboard”
• Airman – Arms out like wings and zoom
• Sit the teams opposite each other on ground, with feet touching – like ladders.
• Make sure there is space between each pair for feet!
• Name the girls as characters starting at opposite sides of the line.
• If their character is mentioned, they run up the middle of the line towards their President, then around behind the whole team, back through the middle to their own space.
