Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

‘Loading up’ the water game


The focal point of the game is a water source.  A stream, the sea, a bucket full, or a tap.

Having made their paper cup each guide is given a small empty container.   Now each of the Guides walk ten paces away – places their container down.

On the word go each guide must fill up their paper cup from the chosen water source. Taking the water to their small container.

Guidies may guard their small container.  When actively guarding it no other guide may encroach and take the other Guides water from that container.

After a few minutes you will see some Guides taking water from unguarded cups, others making a dash to the main water source.  This is a continuous game.  The Guides learn to be observant, to plan strategies and to have their Guide Laws come alive.

Word of Caution for the Adults running the game: If at any time and abuse of the Guide Laws is occurring, or you see one Guides container continually being water sourced stop the game.  Explain why this is an abuse of the not only the Guides guide laws but an abuse of the Guide herself.

Restart the game if there is another five minutes for clean fun!  This game is relaxing, stimulating and healthy with lots of  laughter and fun generated.
