You asked for ideas about vinter activities. Here is som that we do in Sweden.
First a game taht must be plaed in deep snow. Let the scouts stand i a circle
with a distance of abot 3-5 meters between them. In the middle of the circle
there shall be untouched snow.
First step is to make a playing arena. Each scout walk slowly to the right from
first standpiont to where the scout next right to him previosly stodd.
This form a circular path in the snow. Next step is that every scout walk
slowly in to the middle of the circle. When every one has met in the middle
there is path in the snow that lokks like a bicyclewheel. This in the arena.
Now one of the scout is choseen to hunt the others. Teh scouts is only
allowed to run oin the paths. When teh hunter touches another scout that scout
becomes the hunter. Game ends when every one is to tired to run.
Now an activity we do.
Take small plastic bottles and fill wit water and let them freeze solid. The biu
a bobsliegh track for the bottles in the snoe on a slope. the track can have
turns and bend and even some jumps, ist your fantasi that is the limit.
If you have acces to ice with out snow on it you can play curling with plastic b
filled with water that has been frozen standing up.
Hope this helps, pleas feel free to send more question if any thing is unclear.
Yours in scouting
