6.10 Game: Sweeties

Beavers are split into teams, each team in a different corner of the room, and the teams are named after sweets e.g. smarties, gobstoppers etc.

The leaders stand in the middle of the room and the beavers run round in a clockwise direction. One leader blows a whistle and shouts the name of one of the sweets then all the beavers have to try to get back to their corners while the leaders catch the beavers from the named team. When a beaver is caught before he/she manages to reach Home he sits in the middle with the catchers.
