Ring on a String Activity
long string - about 2 feet per scout.
Slip the ring on the string.
Tie the ends of the string together to make a large circle.
One scout stands in the center of the string circle.
All other scouts hold the string with both hands.
One scout will have the ring in a hand.
The scout in the middle closes his eyes and the scouts on the circle move the ring around until the game leader tells the scout in the middle to open his eyes.
The scout in the middle tries to guess where the ring is while the scouts on the string try to secretively move it around.
When the scout guesses correctly, he switches places with the one who had it.
Good game for gathering time as people can join in at any time and there is no scoring.
