we have always found it hard to make learning the promise fun... and last night my nearly young leader (he is still a scout) rose to the challenge - I asked him a couple of weeks a go to come up with a new game for a meeting. The meeting theme was promise, and last night he was brilliant.
He had made four posters
"Do my best"
He had put one up in each corner of the hall and then explained the rules to the Beavers...
They had to shout "I promise" and he would reply with one of the sentences above - they then raced to that corner, and the last one was out... they all shouted "I promise" again and he sent them off to another corner!
The kids loved it, they want to play it again next week! They also knew all the words to the promise by the end of it....
Just had to share!
