Fizzy Fireworks


Two candles decorated to look like fireworks.
Strips of white crepe paper or triangular bangages (aka Neckers)

Game Description

The boys sit in a circle. The "fireworks" are passed around the circle.When the leader claps his/her hands and shouts "BANG" very loudly the boys holding the candles lose a turn by having to go to hospital for medical attention. A strip of crepe paper (a bandage)is applied to their person.If they should get caught three times they are out as it is explained to them that they are too badly injured to continue.

My Beavers loved this game, and it's a fun way to re-emphasise the dangers of fireworks.
