Back Writing




This is a great icebreaker game, suitable for anytime of the year but especially at the start your guiding year.


1. The Guides stand in a line one behind the other.
2. The Guide at the back of the line thinks of a word and writes the first letter, using her index finger, on the back of the Guide in front. This Guide then writes the same letter on the back of the Guide in front and so on until the letter reaches the front Guide who writes it down.
3. The Guide then passes the second letter down in the line in the same way.
4. Continue until the word is complete and see what word the front Guide has received.
