String Shapes

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Team members have to hold onto the rope with both hands at waist level and the Adult Leader will call out some shapes eg square, circle, triangle, pentagon, diamond, etc and the teams needs to make that shape with the rope. Team who completes the task the quickest wins that round, continue until you run out of shapes or just do say five shapes and the team which wins the most rounds wins the game. This can be done in sixes/lodges and you can appoint a team leader to organise their team to help with the team leader badge.

Can untie rope and use letters/numbers instead. Spell out Beavers or Cubs who is the quickest.


Rope made into a loop, one for each team.
