Tin Soldiers Activity
This Activity is meant for Cub Scouts.
Make pairs of scouts and have them stand at a starting location.
Scout #1 is the commander. He gives orders.
Scout #2 is the tin soldier. He can only obey direct orders from his partner scout #1. He can only walk forward, not backward.
The goal is to have a commander give orders to his tin soldier to cover an obstacle course to the finish line using commands like Walk, Stop, Turn Left, Turn Right. Avoid obstacles and other soldiers.
Blindfolding tin soldiers may help them listen for and obey commands rather than make their own choices.
