Minuteman game

This was a really simple game but surprisingly fun. We talked about militias and "minutemen," and then we played a game where you had to see if you could put on boots, coat, and ammunition/canteen straps, grab your musket, and run to the end of the house and back---all in under a minute. We timed everyone and it was VERY exciting. There was lots of laughing and stumbling around. Even the little girls wanted to try. It was fun to imagine the ways the minutemen might have tried to save time---maybe hopping into their waiting boots, like firemen on their way to a fire. :)
