STUCK IN THE MUD: Stylish and cool get-together activities such as this are always a great addition to a celebration. More often than not fun activities in which everyone can play and participate will liven up the event and make it very special. Therefore, activities like this, will add a great deal to the festivity. To play the game, one person is IT and has to run round touching as many people as they can. When they have touched someone, that person has to stop and stand with their legs apart and their hands out stretched, until someone crawls through their legs. If you have been caught three times, then you are out. The game ends when everyone left is standing still. Lots more 50s Sock Hop celebration thoughts here
