How To Play Squirrelly Nut

Materials Needed

Nothing! Just people?

This game should be played with 10-25 people. Pair up each person with a partner. Pick a team to be the squirrel and the nut. Have the squirrel chase the nut. The nut can hook onto a pair of people to get away! As soon as the nut hooks onto a pair, the person on the other side of the pair becomes the nut, so then the squirrel continues to cahse each nut. If the squirrel tags the nut, the nut becomees the squirrel and the squirrel becomes the nut!

If it's anything like cat & mouse does that mean all the partners who are not the squirrel or the nut are standing facing each other with their hands joined in the air creating an arch for the nut (& the squirrel) to run through.

For a nut to join a pair, they would run under the arch then reach up and join hands, in the process pushing out one of the partners who will then become the nut?

Have I got that right?
