Get girls thinking about promises they can keep and those they can't.
- The Leader stands with her back to the Rainbows and they creep up behind her. As the Leader turns around the Rainbows freeze. Anyone found moving is out.
- If the Leader says ‘I promise to keep my room tidy’ or a similar promise that could be kept, the girls continue to creep.
- But, if the Leader says, ‘I promise to eat you!’ (or similar) the girls run back to the start line as the Leader tries to tag them.
- Talk afterwards about promises that you can keep and those, like eating a Rainbow, that can’t be kept!
Promise activities may encourage girls to talk about their own backgrounds and belief systems. Read our guidance on including all girls.
