Uncle Sam Dress Up Relay added 5-2-06 Original Author Unknown

Need: two sets of clothing consisting of: Uncle Sam's hat, a white beard, a blue jacket or shirt (one that's sized to fit the largest guest) a red clip-on bow tie, and a bell.

Directions: Separate the players into two equal lines spaced approximately 6 feet apart. (If there you do not have an unequal number of players, the first player in the shortest line can take a second turn)  Place a set of clothing at the beginning of each line; then place a bell approximately 15 feet in front of each line.  When you say go, the first player in line must completely get dressed up in the clothing; then march (not run) to the bell. When they reach the bell, they are to pick it up with their left hand, turn and face their teammates, ring the bell.  Then they must replace the bell, march back to the front of their line, remove the clothing, and go to the end of their line. The next player repeats the process; repeat until the last player finishes. The first team to finish is the winner.

Note: You can also use shaving cream for the players to make their own beards. Just be sure to have a hose or bucket of water to clean up in after. You can also move the bell closer and have helpers for younger team players.
