Choose It, Plan it, Do it!

What is this resource?

Choose it, Plan it, Do it! is a Woodcraft Folk activity pack containing a selection of ideas and tools for gathering ideas, planning and making decisions in groups of all ages. The pack is divided into three parts, with subsections. Each section is packed full of useful activities to make planning and decision making as a group easy, fun, inclusive and inventive.

The Big Plan

Members of Woodcraft Folk decided on five main ambitions that the organisation should work towards, locally and nationally, between 2008 and 2013. Four cross cutting ambitions were also decided, which will help us achieve the main seven. Two more main ambitions were added in 2010. 

You can download the full Big Plan from the foot of this page, and read more about the groups working towards the ambitions on the Working Groups page.

Split the Elfins into groups of about 4 or 5.

Same But Different

This activity can be run as the first activity in a group night about refugee issues, to get Elfins thinking about people who might seek sanctuary in the UK, what they need and how we can help them.

You will need: chalk or string

Time: 15 minutes

Draw a chalk circle on the floor, or make one in string, about the size of a group circle.

Ask everyone to stand just outside the circle, and to jump into it when a statement is read that applies to them.
