    These are great Jellie, well done.

    What are you doing/done in your units this week? Part 4

    I'm going to use that doily bunting idea! Rainbows did the 'Feeling Fruity' SB and it went really well. Only had two small accidents that required first aid.

    What are you doing/done in your units this week? Part 4

    Did the 2nd Charity SB. Glad we changed the activities. The girls had fun, we chose a couple of charities to fundraise for and, amazingly, the girls didn't ask for a game at the end (no time anyway) because they were so engaged in the theme. It's a fruity SB next week, so they'll like that as...

    How are you progressing with UMA hours?

    We've done one UMA. Can't remember the time that was allocated. The UMAs are not our priority to be honest. We're grinding our way through SBs so some girls have a chance of getting a badge.

    What are you doing/done in your units this week? Part 4

    Another SB this week. Looking at how charities raise money, then choosing how we want to raise money and for what charity. We have had to tweak (change) the activities on the card to make them more fun.

    What are you doing/done in your units this week? Part 4

    Hahaha, indeed an activity on actual pants would have been preferable, though not sure I could put a 'survival' twist on it!

    What are you doing/done in your units this week? Part 4

    We did a UMA which was pants (something to do with survival skills) cos it was just ill thought out. Then did campfire singing and had s'mores over a disposable BBQ, which I picked up from the only place selling them at this time of year: the 'about to close down' Homebase branch! I'm now...

    We've done a few SBs now and finding them a bit samey, with too much write/discuss parts. We have Rainbows and this really isn't what they come to an out of school group for.

    I had a Rainbow complete the first interest badge of the Unit. I spoke to her mum who was very supportive and making sure the girl was challenged. Not sure that's going to happen with them all. We managed 2 SB last meeting. However as I predicted I couldn't follow through with all the activities...

    Question? Rainbow song

    The Rainbow song is very much still on the go. I don't know why folk aren't using it.

    Fenris, your point that after around two years our Rainbow unit will be 'ready to start the cycle again' doesn't fill me with excitement and enthusiasm. Our programme was incredibly varied: we rarely repeated activities, as trying new things kept it fresh for the Leaders. Now I fear we'll be on...

    Fab tips Fenris, thank you!

    Weekly Discussion: Buy cheap buy twice?

    Our pet annoyance is dried up glue sticks. We don't craft often enough to get any real use out of them before they are binned. Sorry, that's not actually a tip! I don't buy cheap pencils anymore cos they tend to be broken in the middle. I get the chunky ones. I once had PVA go mouldy, again...

    Ok, Rainbows coin chain challenge went down partially well. It did drag on (45min UMA). Probably needs split over two meetings next time as it was too long sitting in their (unco-operative) groups. Squeals of delight when they achieved the skill of spinning a coin!

    I think we can manage that one as written. We have some girls who love to come up with flamboyant actions!

    So far this term we have had 2 Rainbows miss two different meetings where we ran different SBs. They won't earn those badges. It's now the nature of the beast. Miss the activity, miss the badge. It'll be a fortunate Rainbow in our unit who will earn a theme award.

    Undoing a mistake on website re new programme SB.

    Can anyone tell me how to remove a 'completed' skills builder that I input by mistake? Have emailed CHQ but not hopeful of a speedy reply.

    Did you mean the mask templates SN? I bought from Hobbycraft (10 for £1, elastic £2.20). The girls decorated them with felt pens. At the weekend I walked round our village photographing potential dangers (there were lots). Printed two images to an A4, then laminated. We stuck them round the...
