Cheers and Applauses

SNJC Pow Wow Book

Hike the Mountain Applause: March in place. Begin with head erect, shoulders back and a steady step. As mountain becomes steeper, slow down the march and bend forward as if straining to continue the hike. At the top, collapse back in your seat, wipe your brow with sleeve, and sigh, "We made it."


Giant Beehive Cheer: Tell the group to buzz like a bee. When your hand is raised, the volume should increase. When you lower your hand the volume should decrease. Practice this at various levels.


Flower Applause: Like a flower blooming, raise part way up in chair, look around, then stand up quickly, yelling, "Sprooooing".


Water Sprinkler Yell: Make the sound of the water sprinkler, "Chee, Chee, Chee, Swissssssssssh!"


Firecracker: Strike a match on the leg, light the firecracker, make noise like fuse "sssss", then yell loudly "BANG!!"


Clean Air Applause:           Take in as much air as you can through your nose, hold it, then exhale and say, “Ahhhhhhh!!”  (from SCCC Pow Wow Book)
