    One of the activities we are doing during our jubilee celebrations will be 60 activities in 60 minutes, much like the challenge 100. We have things like juggle for 60 seconds and do 60 skips.... does anyone have any ideas for more please? Suitable for all sections....

    Thanks!

    1n 60 minutes I think you need to do 10 skips not 60 or you are using up a chunk of time.
    Tie a knot/bow/shoelace
    Say promise
    promise from another section
    Promise in another language
    Sing I verse National Anthem
    Name old coins Penny, shilling etc.
    Address and envelope
    Drink a glass of water
    Wash and dry glass
    Do a headstand/handstand
    forward/backward roll

    is this what you want?

    Build a tower with 60 things (pennies?)

    Use chop sticks to move 60 things (maltesers for guides, maybe cotton wool balls for smaller ones)

    Think of 60 boys / girls names

    60 star jumps

    Find 60 hidden objects (pictures

    60 things that begin with a letter

    Colour in a 60

    Play the 60 second game. All stand . Start the stopwatch/clock and when they think 60 seconds is up they sit down. The girl who sits dwn closest to the min is the winner.

    Logo Quiz

    Find some classic British logos, either give them 60 seconds to how many they can get in that time or give them 60 logos, how many can they get.

    variation on this could be walk from one side of room to other in 60 seconds and see who is closest :)


    show a tray or bag of different items... how many can they remember and write down in 60 seconds?

    play a recording of different sounds... how many can they identify and remember and write down in 60 seconds?


    doing 60 things in 60 minutes is going to be hard work! it'll probably take all day as you need to allow for transition and movement between each activity and explaining what needs to be done and setting it up etc etc

    I'm going to do a variation on this with my Guides tonight. Not quite 60 things in 60 minutes, but a series of 60 second challenges. Will report back on how it goes.

    Had a quiet-ish day at work today, so had a think around 'zones' eg Physical, skill, artistic, quiz/knowledge, etiquette, silly and have these:

    10 hops on each leg
    Catch a ball 10 times
    Throw and catch a ball with a partner 10 times
    Throw a ball against a wall and catch it 10 times
    Skip around the hut for at least 60 skips
    Shake hands with everyone at the meeting
    Balance a beanbag on your head and walk for 10 steps
    Parachut an object into the air 10 times
    Write your name backwards
    Put your uniform top on backwards and ..
    walk backwards for 10 steps
    Eat a biscuit with good manners (mouth closed, pinkey out!)
    Drink a drink with goo dmanners
    With a parther say, 'How do you do' in a posh voice and do a curtsey to each other
    Draw a flower with 6 petals (one for each decade of the Queen's reign)
    Fill in missing words from the Promise and God Save the Queen
    Quiz: what is the xth letter of the alphabet
    Draw/colour a new crown for the Queen
    Queen/royal quiz, eg what is the Queens first name, name her husband etc

    So there's a few there that will hopefully be of use, I think I'm up to 37 so far ..... and the meeting is on Thursday so we may have to do things twice ... :)

    We ended up just doing it as a quiz where they had to list as many things from a given category as they could in 60 seconds (in their patrols). I'd planned on just doing that to start off, and then moving on to some physical challenges too, but they wanted to keep doing the quiz. We finished off with a 60 second hockey tournament.
