Badge Work

Working towards a badge is a great way to structure your group nights over a term or half term. By completing activities and tasks children can earn badges to show what they have achieved. This is done in a non-competitive way and is about personal and group achievement, not about doing better or worse than others.

Linking us together - Hands In! 2014

Hands In! 2014! is about sharing your stories and games with other Woodcraft Folk groups. We've posted the start of a story to several Woodcraft Folk groups, who are each the first in a chain of 4 or 5 groups. We hope each group in the chain will write part of the story and send it on to the next group. 

Span the world with friendship postcards

We made this as a project to do with Elfins for the I am badge. We thought it would be nice to start spanning the world with friendship by sending postcards to other Woodcraft Folk groups. I asked on the Woodcraft Folk Facebook group if anyone would like to have a postcard from our Elfins and got enough addresses to send a postcard each. 

We spent a group night colouring in and writing a quick note on the back. I added my address if people wanted to send a postcard back and put them in the post. I've attached a .PDF of the postcard's design.

Evaluation tools

It's really  useul to reflect on how an activity went, what impact it had on the participants and how it could be even better next time. In the download below are lots of different activities you can use to evaluate a session or an event. They're all fun, participatory and can be mixed and matched to draw out the sorts of reflections you want.
