After four years of waiting it's finally time we start swapping our uniforms for rugby kits and Scout songs for national anthems. The Rugby World Cup is back and here are five alternative ways you can bring the celebrations into your Scout HQ.

Design your own rugby ball

Ask your Group to design their own rugby ball inspired by their favourite hobbies. They can present it as as wall hanging, potato print, or a mosaic.

Bake edible rugby balls

What's a celebration without cake? Drive your Group's interest in the World Cup with these great rugby ball cupcakes

Get crafty with traditions

Get your Group to choose a country taking part in the Rugby World Cup and learn something new about it to tell each other. Then do a traditional craft or creative activity together.

Skype a Scout Group in another country

The Rugby World Cup means that people from countries all over the world meet up to enjoy their shared passion, rugby. Connect with a Group from overseas to chat about your shared love of Scouting.

Play rugby

Yeah ‘original‘ we know, but getting your Group active and playing a sport once a week helps to keep them fit and happy (and gets rid of all that excess energy that's making them so giddy). Win win!
