5-minute filler for Explorers | 19 April

Explorer Five Min Filler

Help your Explorer Scouts to concentrate and express themselves with this active memory game. 

Ask your Explorers to stand in a circle.

Choose one Explorer to start the game and ask them to say their name and make a movement demonstrating what they love to do most. Some ideas are dancing, climbing, swimming, chatting and sleeping.

The Explorer Scout to their right then repeats the movement before saying their own name and doing their own movement.

This continues around the circle with each Explorer copying all of the moves that were made before them before adding their own name and movement. (The last person has the trickiest job of remembering all of the movements!)

If they’re finding that easy, ask them to work backwards and only repeat every second person’s movement.
