A web of good things

Help every girl in your unit realise she is unique and has individual talents.


  1. Ask your girls to stand or sit in a circle.
  2. One girls starts off with the ball of string. She shouts out her name and something she is good at while throwing the string to another girl. Make sure that she holds on to the end of the string!
  3. The next girl holds on to the string and does the same.
  4. This continues until all of the girls are holding the string. They should end up with a web of things that they are good at. You could do this as a unit or a Patrol.
