World Flag Cootie
This game worked really well with my old Guide group in
Pointe Claire, Quebec! It is an adaptation of the "Cootie" game children
play. You must have one "kit" for each team. Each "kit" includes:
As you can see, I have separated the parts of the flag into 6 groupings,
one for each side of the dice.
Parts of the world flag cut up from construction paper (blue background,
gold squares, white blaze, the flowing line around the trefoil, the trefoil
pieces, the stars and needle)
Piece of paper saying what each number on the dice corresponds to (1 for
the background, 2 for the squares, etc.)
The teams must roll the dice, and then come up to the Guiders and get
what the team needs. For extra challenge, the girls would also have
to tell the Guider the meaning of the part, to get the piece. If
they are wrong, they must go back to the team and find the answer before
First team to correctly assemble the flag wins!
This type of game also works well to teach the girls how to do bedrolls,
pitch a tent, or anything else your imagination can conjure up!
