Dress Me

Preparation: This is a great icebreaker for a den or pack meeting and it can be played just about anywhere.  It is best played with at least 4 players and the only equipment needed is a big, big old shirt.

Object of the game is to move the shirt from one player to another while they hold hands.  It is more fun to have players arranged Cub – adult – Cub – adult.

The first player puts on the big shirt and takes the hand of the next player.  The rest of the players try to take the shirt off the first player and put it onto the second without breaking their handhold.  The only way that this can be done is to turn the shirt inside out as it goes over the first player’s head.  Once it is over that player’s head and onto the next player, another player joins hands with the player wearing the shirt, and the first player becomes a dresser.  Depending on the number of players, the line can be extended until all the players have had the shirt on and then taken it off.  If there are enough players and shirts available, this can be played in teams as a race.
