World Guiding Bingo

Equipment needed:

Counters/matches/or jelly beans



20 minutes

Activity details:

Give each girl a blank grid and a copy of the answers between 3-4 girls. Each girl is to write any one of the answers from the answer sheet in each square randomly. There are 35 questions and only 25 squares so not all answers will be used. Each girl should have a different looking Bingo grid. The questions are then read in any order and if a girl thinks she has the answer on her board, she raises her hand. When the correct answer has been given, any girl who has that answer on her board needs to put a counter/ match/jelly bean on that square.

The purpose is to get a line of 5 correct answers in a row either horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

This game can be played a number of times, mixing up the order of the questions or the girls can make new answer grids.

This bingo game can be used for a range of topics – you just need to think up the questions and answers – by getting each girl to make up her own Bingo grid it saves time.

All dominos are turned face down, girls choose 4 each to start. Any girl may start by placing one of her dominos on the table. The next girl tries to add one of hers. If she can’t match either end, she must pick up another domino until she can add one to the game.

Equipment needed:

Per Guide - 115cm lengths of wool in 6 colours











20 minutes

Activity details:

Tie the bell to the middle of one of the lengths of wool

Take your 6 lengths of wool together and tie 13 overhand knots in the wool with even distances apart.

Join the ends with a reef knot. The legend:

10 of the knots represent the Guide Law. One knot represents the promise. One knot represents the unity of Guiding. One knot represents friendship. The reef knot is used as it won’t slip and allow the link of friendship around the world to break.

The colours:

Gold – sun that shines above the world

Blue – waters of the world that divide our land Red – hope of continued friendship and peace Green – nature that provides beauty worldwide

Mauve – arts of the world, all unique to their cultures Pink – unit of all colours within the Guide sisterhood

The Bell: An old Thai custom says that the sound it makes frightens away evil

Equipment needed:

Newspaper or Tennis Balls

Colour paper

String/Cord Scissors


40 minutes

To make you will require :

1. The cords should be about 800mm long, so you can also tie around the paper ball

2. You can if you wish plait different coloured wool together to make a nicer looking Poi cord.

3. Push the newspaper into a ball (or use tennis ball) and tie one end of the cord around the ball.

4. Cut the coloured paper into a square about 400mm x 400mm.

5. Place the ball in the middle of the paper and gather the material over the ball.

6. Cut another piece of cord to tie the opening in the material up.

7. You can also add a layer of plastic over the Bag Poi and tie as before. This will make them last longer when used outside.

8. Trim the gathered paper with the scissors.

9. Tie loops or knots in the ends of the cord to hold onto as handles.

10. Make another one and you have your fi rst set of Poi.

The traditional poi was used in games and physical exercises to sharpen refl exes, increase fl exibility and improve coordination.

Basic Poi Toa (said poy toe-a): Hand-to-Hand Passing

Initially have the players spinning the Poi Toa while standing still. Have them make big circles (with the ki or head of the Poi Toa) and then have them shorten their ropes to make small circle - and then letting out the rope to make big circles again.

Then move the players on. Have them practice spinning and handing over the Poi Toa to each other with-out the Poi Toa stopping – they can do this in pairs. Body and hand positions are crucial when successfully passing and receiving a spinning Poi Toa.

Next, divide the players into two equal teams. Have them standing still in a straight line with a two metre gap down the middle. Give the front person in each line a Poi Toa.

On “Go!” they pass it to the next one in line, and so on, until the Poi Toa reaches the last player in the line who then runs to the front of the line, still spinning the Poi Toa, and sits down. The rest of the team sits down also.

The fi rst team “down” (having passed correctly and having kept the Poi Toa spinning) wins.

Could also have the players keep going until everyone has had a turn at being in the front of their line. (This activity can also be adapted into a circle).
