Traffic lights game

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK


A run around game for Anchors following instructions as traffic light signals are called

For Beavers this is supported by the GGNZ Programme Team
Suitable for GGNZ Virtual Group Guiding - adapt for over video call




Children run around the room. If the leader calls Green - they continue to run. If leader calls Amber they walk around. If leader calls Red they stop. Further 'add-ons' to this basic core game, include: leader calls 'Traffic Jam' - all children sit down. Leader calls 'Wide Load' - children stand still with arms outstretched and legs wide apart. If you're having your beavers follow a specific circular route (around a hall or park, say), you can also add a leader call of 'U-Turn', at which the children reverse direction.

Alternative: red means to stand to attention, amber means at ease and green means stand easy.
