Thar's A Bar Game

Materials:
none or costumes

Directions:
The leaders' exaggerated expression is the key to this one. Have a row of five to six kids pass the phrase, "Thar's a bar!" "Whar!" "Over thar!" and a hand motion down the row. Start with one arm point then add second arm, then point with two arms and a leg. End down on one knee with two arms pointing. The leader pushes the kids over domino style at the end.

If you know you are doing this ahead of time, goofy hats and costumes like you are going on a hike will help the atmosphere. Also, heavy backpacks will get students off balance easier. The sell is a Bar Drill instead of a Fire Drill - make them sound the same.
