Red Light - Green Light

Sparks Guider, Pathfinder Guider, Craft Trainer, Potential Trainer, Chair of Division Composite Camp, District Commissioner
Central Area, Ganaraska Division, Sugarbush District


Craft: You can have the Sparks/Brownies make their own signs by drawing a circle on red and green construction paper or you can make up a set to be used for future meeting see example and keep to be used for various topics (NOTE) my sample is a 5 inch circle with a handle like the stop signs that the crossing guards use, make out of red and green Bristol board.

To Play: Distribute a red circle and a green circle to each Spark/Brownie Then, ask the girls questions. If the question is right or the girls feel they should say yes, they put up the Green circle. If the answer is no, or it is something they shouldn't do, they raise the Red Circle. Can be used for different topics.
