    • Good Friend Circle Game
      Have the girls sit in a circle. Ask the girls the questions below. If they feel the answer is behaviour of a GOOD FRIEND have them jump up, shout out “good friend” and clap their hands; if they feel the answer is behaviour of a BAD FRIEND have them shout out “bad friend”. Take a minute to debrief each answer and reinforce the correct answer. Make sure to congratulate the girls when they are correct.

      • Friendship Bracelets
        • Using colourful beads and durable string, parachute twine or dental floss, have the girls make friendship bracelets. They can make one for themselves and a few to give to friends. Note: Consider asking each girl to give the bracelet to someone they don’t frequently talk to but would like to become friends with.



      • Complete one random act of kindness for a friend. Explain to your unit what constitutes as a random act of kindness. For example, help Mom bring in the groceries or help your little brother clean up his toys. Report back to your unit on how it felt and why you chose that particular deed.
