    i did this once, and i printed out the words, cut them out and stuck them to card so they were nice and sturdy. The girls were then given one each (or more if you don't have enough girls, or in pairs if you have more) and then they had to put them in order, so whoever thought they had the first word went first, and then the second etc which worked well

    I did a similar thing with balloons (no allergies in my unit!) and then they were able to take the balloon home at the end!

    Am sure I have more ideas somewhere - will check and post tomorrow.

    we have also made a big poster together of what they think the promise meant, and although they were slow to start thinking of things and had to be prompted a bit, they got really into it and had some fab ideas like "helping a new person at school find their way around" and "teaching a new rainbow a game" and things... i then wrote them on a big piece of paper to be displayed in the hall.

    We have also written the promise onto pieces of paper and held a kind of relay race to put the pieces into the correct order. This can be done in a variety of ways.

    You could do that as a game too - Print out some simple scenarios (in a few words or as pictures/cartoons) of rainbows keeping and breaking their promise, and get them to sort out which ones are keeping the promise and which ones are them not keeping their promise, and get them to discuss why they put each one in each pile, and then you could ask them to think of a few more.

    Does anyone know where I can find a copy of the Rainbow promise that can be coloured in? I know there are black and white versions around with big lettering and I could do with a copy I can print off rather than scan in.

    Default Rainbow promise to colour

    I have a font on my computer called carnival which looks quite good when coloured, have a look and see what you think. You should be able to print it if it's what you want.
