Age groups Ranger Guide Bulbul 5-10 Girl Guiding/Girl Scouting introduced: Founder Member of WAGGGS (in conjunction with present day Bangladesh and Pakistan under the name of India) Number of Girl Guides/Girl Scouts: (01/01/2006) Admits boys: No India Challenge 1 - Flag Colour this in India Challenge 2 - Elephant Mask Craft You can tell this gorgeous elephant mask is of an Indian elephant because of his colourful head-dress and his ears! You will need: Large paper plate Grey paint Grey card Coloured paper Decoration (we used 3D paint and gems you can use whatever you have to hand) Glue Thin elastic Instructions: Paint the back of the paper plate grey and leave to dry. When the paint is dry cut out your eye holes. From grey card cut a trunk and two ears, remembering that Indian elephants have small ears. Glue the ears to opposite sides of the face and the trunk to the middle. Cut out a triangle of coloured paper for the head-dress and glue it to the plate so the point sits between the eyes. Decorate the coloured paper with bits from your craft box. Make a small hole in either side of the face. Tie a piece of elastic through. India Challenge 3 - Rangoli A rangoli is a colourful design made on the floor near the entrance to a house to welcome guests. At Diwali, Hindus draw bright Rangoli patterns to encourage the goddess Lakshmi to enter their homes. Rangoli patterns are traditionally drawn with the fingers using flour, rice grains or coloured chalk. Rangoli can be square, rectangular or circular or a mix of all three. They are often symmetrical. Rangoli motifs are usually taken from Nature - peacocks, swans, mango, flowers and so on. Rangoli were originally done in small patterns of about 60cm squares, but now entire areas of floor can be covered in intricate designs, often produced by first drawing gridlines in light chalk. Outdoor Rangoli You will need: Chalk Food colouring (in a number of colours) Plain flour Long rule Thick paint brush Area of yard or garden path Use your ruler to draw out a grid of dots, as close together (for intricate designs) or as far apart as you like. In our outdoor rangoli, we used a grid 50cm by 50cm with 5cm intervals. Now draw on your design with the chalk. As before, younger children may need a design drawn for them to colour. Mix together half a cup of flour with a few drops of food colouring and a little water until it forms a paste about the texture of PVA (white) glue. Repeat for each colour of food colouring that you are using. Use your pastes to paint your design. Note: this will stain the path for quite a while (perhaps permanently) so make sure you have permission first! You may want to paint your design onto a large, movable paving stone instead of directly onto the ground. India Challenge 4 - Diwali The Festival of Lights Diwali will next be celebrated on 3rd November Diwali is celebrated by Hindus in India and all around the world in October or November. It is the Hindu New Year and is either a 3-day or 5-day holiday depending on where you come from. It is a very exciting and colourful holiday. Homes are cleaned to welcome the New Year and windows are opened so that the Hindu goddess of wealth, Lakshmi, can enter. It is believed that she cannot enter a house which is not lit up, so every household burns special Diwali clay lamps (diyas) to light the way for the goddess, which is why the holiday is also known as the Festival of Lights. Children have a holiday from school. Presents are given and delicious holiday food is prepared and exchanged. New clothes and jewellery are worn. Parties are held, and dice and card games are played. Fireworks and firecrackers are set off to warn off evil spirits, so it is a noisy holiday too! The last day of the holiday is a special day for brothers and sisters called Bhaiya-Dooj (or Bhaidooj, or Bhai Dooj). Brothers give special presents to their sisters, who cook for them and look after them. The fifth day of Diwali is called Bhaiya-Dooj (Bhai Dooj), and is a special day for brothers and sisters. Design an award for your brother or sister like that shown below. India Challenge 5 - Diwali Lanterns You will need: Small jam jar Sheets of coloured tissue paper Shiny paper/foil/sequins Glue/double-sided sticky tape Scissors Tea lights Instructions: - Cut a strip of coloured tissue paper that is long enough to wrap around the jam jar. - Decorate your tissue paper by using shiny paper/foil and sequins! For the best looking effect, use just small pieces of paper or foil. This way all the colours will be lit up by the light from the tea light! - Now wrap your tissue paper around the jam jar using glue or sticky tape. - Finally, put the tea light in the bottom of the jam jar and light the wick carefully. Make sure that none of the tissue or card is on the inside of the jam jar! *Why not try making a few lanterns with lots of different colours. They make perfect garden lights!* *Alternatively you could use Glass Paints instead of paper to decorate your jar* India Challenge 6 - Crossword India Challenge 7 - Seven Tiles (Pitto) Needs 6 or more players, aged 5 and up. Equipment needed for this game is 7 sticks or stones which can be stacked into a tower, and a tennis sized ball. The game begins as one team throws the ball at the tower from about 7-10 metres away, trying to knock it over. If the thrower misses the tower, he is out for the rest of the game, and another player from the same team tries to throw. If the tower is knocked over, the opposite team must retrieve the ball, and throw it at the first team trying to hit them all out of the game one at a time. In the meantime the team which knocked over the tower must reconstruct it, avoiding the ball being thrown at them. The second team may not run with the ball, but may pass it around, seeking better position to hit out at the first team. This continues until either the first team is eliminated or the tower is reconstructed, whereupon the team cries Pitto and gets one point. The teams then swap positions and the game is played over and over again. Germany In Germany there are several different scouts and guide organisations the details below are based on Pfadfinderinnenschaft Sankt Georg. Brownie Promise I will really take part in my Patrol and in our group and do my best to bring joy to others. The Brownie can also choose her own words, when she makes her promise.

This sweet made mostly of almonds and powdered sugar has been manufacturedsince the Middle Ages. The old Hanseatic cities Reval (now Tallinn) and Lübeck are both still fully convinced that the right of discovery of marzipan belongs to their city. There are places in Tallinn to go and see people painting the marzipan such as these below. Using marzipan and food colouring mixed together make a marzipan animal. To make this even harder try using coloured icing or food colouring to see if you can create the features as well. Estonia Challenge 2 Zoo 6 or more players, aged 5 to 12 played indoors or outdoors. The players are seated on chairs in a circle. Each is given an animals or birds name. The zoo keeper walks around the outside of the circle and tells a story about the zoo. When the animal name of a player is mentioned in the story, that player must get up and follow the zookeeper. Soon a great line of players forms in this way, and each holds the waist of the player in front of her. When all players are in line, the zookeeper tells them to become their animals, and the all imitate which animal they are supposed to be (eg a bird, elephant etc.) After a while the zookeeper rushes to get a chair. The player who is left out becomes the zookeeper and the game starts all over again. Players are encouraged to change their identities. Estonia Challenge 3 - Nose Telephone 6 or more players, aged 5 and up, played anywhere. Players form two equal teams and line up horizontally, each team facing the other. The game begins as the first player on each team places an empty matchbox (from wooden matches) cover on her nose. She then tries to transfer the matchbox to her neighbour without using her hands. If the matchbox falls, players must pick it up only with their noses. The winning team is that which finishes passing it along first.

Repeat the last five steps on the left side of the paper Now flip the piece over... and repeat these (2) squash folds, that is, the last ten steps. Your piece should now look like the kite below. Fold corner C over to the left, and fold the corresponding corner D in back of the piece around the back and to the right. Next, fold the top of the piece down to the bottom, and unfold. Now looking at the top of the piece, spread the top points open. Squash fold the inner flaps as shown. Then squash fold the petals. Here is the first one (upper left petal) completed.
