Movement, questions and laughter

This is a quick and simple way to get girls moving and thinking.


  1. The girls should each get a chair, put them in a circle and sit down.
  2. Ask a question to which the answer can only be 'yes' or 'no'.
  3. If a girl answers yes, she must move one place to her left.
  4. If she answers no, she must move one place to her right.
  5. This means that everyone will be moving at the same time, even if this means sitting on someone’s lap!
  6. You can keep going until you have used up all your questions or until someone has made a full circuit back to their original chair.

Example questions

  • Do you have a pet?
  • Are your eyes green?
  • Do you like cornflakes?
  • Do you like watching football?
  • Did you go on camp last year?
  • Do you know how to spell 'necessary'?
  • Do you still live in the town where you were born?
  • Can you remember the Promise?
