A step-by-step guide to play the game


Gather a group of players and inform them that they will learn what they can do if someone needs help.


Distribute one of the papers with the printed flower and a pair of scissors to each player.


Instruct the players to cut out the flower.


Facilitate a discussion about past situations when someone needed help. Ask the players to share what happened and what actions were taken.


Once all players have finished cutting their flowers, instruct each player to think of six things they could or should do if someone needs help and add one idea to each petal of the flower.


Have each player write their name in the center of the flower.


When everyone is ready, ask the players, if they are comfortable, to show and explain their flower.


Hang all the flowers together. 


Lead a discussion with the players about their ideas. Highlight the most important ones and discuss the importance of helping each other when possible and being prepared to do so. Inform them that they now have some ready-made ideas about what to do if someone needs help.

The four games/activities of the package are based on those 3 basic steps. The games/activities of the package are:

  1. The Great Observer
  2. Conversational Chaos
  3. Supportive Flowers
  4. A Race to Help
