Take part in games or activities that help Ladybirds get to know each other better. (A great wind blows)
A chair for each girl.
How to play 'A great wind blows':
Arrange the chairs in a circle facing the middle. All the girls sit down. You can play this game without chairs.
A Leader stands outside the circle and calls out ‘a great wind blows for everyone who....’ and completes the sentence with a statement that will affect some of the group (see ideas below). Anyone who is affected must stand up and find another chair which is at least two chairs away from their own.
If a large group of girls stand up, the Leader should quickly remove one of the chairs from the circle as soon as the girls stand up and begin moving. Any girl who cannot find a chair moves outside the circle and helps the adult come up with ideas for the next ‘great wind blows’.
Here are some ideas:
A great wind blows for everyone who has a little brother
A great wind blows for everyone who has a big sister
A great wind blows for everyone who has been to France
A great wind blows for everyone who has a dog
A great wind blows for everyone who ate cornflakes for breakfast this morning
