Print outs


1. Pin up compass points and map symbols around the room (compass points to be in sequence)
2. Start YP in the middle of the room and shout out NORTH, EAST, SOUTH, WEST, STATION, CAR PARK, CHURCH or CAMPSITE (you can use a countdown to encourage quick thinking or to make it harder!)
3. If YP goes to the location they're out, otherwise the last one to the correct location is out
4. Keep playing until you have a winner

This game is good to bring together activities from Stage 1 Navigator Badge and is aimed at Beavers.
