The Running Of:

1) Snow Flakes
As girls arive have them designing, cutting, decorating and hanging their own snowflakes.

2) Snowmen.
Give each patrol a bag of cushion stuffing and a selection of decorative materials. Give them 10 minutes to create the best snow man they can. Get them to tell the unit all about their snowman.

3) Christmas Story Plays
Give each patrol a christmas picture book and 20 minutes to turn it into a performance. Then showcase back the plays to the rest of the unit.

4) Icecream.
In pairs follow the recipe to make their very own ice-cream.

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup rock salt
  • 2 cups ice
  • 1-small Ziploc bag
  • 1-large Ziploc bag


  1. Add sugar, milk, cream, andvanilla to the small Ziplock bag. Seal the bag securely.
  2. Put  ice into the large ziploc bag.
  3. Add salt to the bag of ice.
  4. Place the sealed quart bag inside the bag of ice and salt. Seal the gallon bag securely.
  5. Gently rock the large bag from side to side. It’s best to hold it by the top seal or to have gloves or a cloth between the bag and your hands because the bag will be cold enough to damage your skin.
  6. Continue to rock the bag for 10-15 minutes or until the contents of the quart bag have solidified into ice cream.
  7. Remove the small bag, open it, put into a bowl and enjoy!

5) Christmas Carols
Get each patrol to re write a christmas carol for Christmas in July

6) Orange and Clove decorations.
Girls push cloves into a whole orange to create patterns etc. Attach a ribbon to the orange and you have a nice smelling decoration.
