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

Who will come into my Guide Ring (Version 2)


The Leader of this introduction to colors game stands in the middle of your area.
The Guides follow these simple rules.
The uncaptured Guides skip around when the singing is on.
Only the last captured Guide should be the one to brake the link and capture the next Guide as they skip around.
The leader of the game has her arms and hands out the front of her. She begins the game singing the following …
Who will come into my Guide ring, my  Guide ring,
who will come into my Guide ring,
and make it a little bit bigger.
On bigger she reaches out for the first person to pass her.
With both the leader of the game and her captured Guide holding hands begin the song again.  On bigger the last guide captured will capture the next guide and bring her into the ring. the song begins again.
As the ring gets more Guides in, they all tend to huddle together.  The guides are encouraged not to brake the chain while the song is being sung,… Guides are only as strong as their weakest link.
When the Guides are comfortably stretched out gradually move with the direction that uncaptured guides are skipping around.
Forming the colors Horse shoe from the ring.
Guides of a young ability / age may not understand the commands of calling the color party in e.t.c.
The leaders/ adults will all be finishing this game with their backs to the flag pole.
Everyone drops their hands.  The leaders ask the Guides to stand where they are.  The leaders take two or three steps back.  The leader calling the commands is to the right of the rest of the leaders. And as it turns out should be approximately to the right of the flag pole.  The other leaders to the left of the flag pole.
The Guides at the end opposite to the leaders will, Having been shown this a few times,  open a hole in their “ranks” big enough for three color party to form in.
You may either have a preselected color party to call in or you may choose the Guide in the middle of the ring to be color bearer and those on either side of her to be her assistance’s.
I  have found this a good introduction to the color party basic formation.  Especially good for a Unit that comprises of five to around eight year olds.
The seven to nine year olds may only need to play this game once or twice.
It is after this part is practiced a few times that the horse shoe sides are refined.  That is you gradually ask the guides to form a horse shoe that has straight sides.  Rather than one that has bowed sides.
This means the round circle will become elongated, and gradually the guides will straighten up of their own accord.  Prompted sometimes by you.
