Party like you’re FIVE

Played this for the first time for a bunch of 5 year olds:

and the response was outrageous.  They looked at each other and immediately hopped and spun out of their seats, screaming and oogachakaing and laughing.  Within seconds there were bodies on the floor, there was snaking and MichaelJacksoning of all types, there was hugging and squeezing and moshing and hands-like-guns-shooting and chasing and head gyrating and ring-around-the-rosie and booty-bumping and macarena and hip-slapping and cheerleading and choo-choo train and ballet spins and dance dips and fake fainting.  And, “Again!  Again!  Again!” when it was over.

Party like you’re FIVE.  That’s the new black.
