Bang the Bear

Balloons, scarves, hats

One scout is the bear, and has three bases in which he can take refuge and be safe. He carries a small balloon on his back. The other boys are armed with clubs of straw rope twisted or knotted scarves, with which they try to burst his balloon while he is outside a base. The bear has a similar club, with which he knocks off the hunters' hats. If a hunter's hat is knocked off he is counted killed but the bear's balloon has to be burst before he is killed so he will learn to turn his face to the enemy and not his back.
