- The Leader reads the story of the Green Goblin (story below)
- Guides go into the garden to find as many different shades of green as they can.
- Guides then paste them on to the card in the design of a house
"Once there was a goblin who loved bright colours so much that he painted his home in as many colours as he possibly could.
The goblin king received so many complaints that he decreed that the goblin, in future, was to use one colour only. At first the goblin was sad but then he thought of the lovely colour green.
He went into the country and found all the different shades of green that he could and painted his house in them so that it was nearly as bright as before but no one could complain because he had only used ONE colour.
Now what the folks of Goblin Town didn't know was that the brownies, who thought the goblins's brightly coloured house was great fun, had helped him by collecting the different greens & trying them out on a house of paper"
