Players have a tail inserted into his/her belt or
pocket that is hanging at the back-side.
All players chase one another trying to collect

Players with the most tails collected in a
speciﬁed time are the winners.
Select one child,to start the game and be the “stoplight”.
All the children line up on the other side of gym.
The ‘stoplight’ yells “Green light!” and the children lined up start
Object of game: The ﬁrst one to make it to the stoplight wins and is
now the stoplight.
It gets tricky when the stoplight changes…
The stoplight should yell “Red light!” to get children to stop.
Any movement by a child means she is sent back to the beginning.
The stoplight can also call out “yellow light” which means the
children can only walk very slowly.
Variations to this game include yelling “red light” two times in a row,
or adding body movements. Say “green light” with your arms up one
time and then say “red light,” but throw your arms up again to
confuse runners into thinking your body language says “green light.”

youth with rubber chickens.

Cops and robbers This popular version of tag is also commonly known as “jail
tag” or “police and thief”. Participants will be split into
Team Tag game two groups at the start of the game — “cops” and
“robbers”. The cops must pursue the robbers and tag them
in order to catch them. Once tagged, a robber must sit in a
predeﬁned location that is called the “jail”.
Robbers can release fellow robbers who have been
imprisoned in jail by tagging them, as long as they don’t
get tagged themselves during the prison break. The game
is over when the cops have managed to round up all of the
robbers. Some versions of this game will allow the robbers
to hide before the cops can look for them.
What time is it Mr Wolf One player is chosen to be Mr Wolf. Mr Wolf stands at the
opposite end of the playing ﬁeld from the other players, facing
away from them. A call-and-response then takes place: all
players except for Mr Wolf chant in unison "What's the time, Mr
Wolf?", and Mr Wolf will answer in one of the two ways:
Mr Wolf may call a clock time (e.g., "3 o'clock"). The other
players will then take that many steps, counting them aloud as
they go ("One, two, three"). Then they ask the question again.
Mr Wolf may call "Dinner time!"/"Lunch Time", when Mr Wolf
will turn around and chase the other players back to their
starting point. If Mr Wolf successfully tags a player, that player
becomes the new Mr Wolf for the next round.
Blind Four Corners Required: Blindfold
Players: Medium to large groups
Here’s a quick game that can be played in a classroom or gym.
Select one player to wear a blindfold and they are to be placed
into the center of the room.
Once the player is blindfolded and in position, the other players
must stand in one of the four corners.
They must do this very quietly (no talking allowed) and within 10
If a player is not in a corner by the time your done counting, that
player is out of the game.
The player that is blindfolded will point to one of the corners and
all the players in that corner will be out of the game.
To be fair you cannot go to one corner, make noises and then
quickly move to another corner.
If no one is in a selected corner, the players have 5 seconds to
get to another corner before a new corner is selected.
The one person that was never found will be the new player in
Invite students to stand in a circle. Ask the group to repeat the Zip-Zap-Zop
words “Zip, Zap, Zop” three or four times, all together. Introduce the
activity: Imagine that I have a bolt of energy in my hands. To ﬆart the
game, I will send the bolt out of energy out of my body with a ﬆrong
forward motion ﬆraight to someone else in the circle (use hands, body,
eyes, and voice to make contact across the circle) and say, “Zip.” Explain
that the next person takes the energy and passes it immediately to
someone else saying “Zap.” That person passes it on to another
participant with a “Zop.” The game continues and the “Zip, Zap,
Zop” sequence is repeated as the energy moves around the circle.
Encourage all plays to use their whole body to send energy and to
make eye contact. They can send the energy to whomever they want
but the goal is to include all players. Practice the game. If there is a
mistake, encourage students to simply resume playing without
discussion. The group challenge is to go very quickly and stay
consistent in rhythm; if students struggle, pause the game, discuss
strategy and try again.
Whose the Murder
Have your students sit or stand into a circle. Pick on
person secretly to become the murder. You may have
everyone closed their eyes as you pick one of your
students to be the murder.
The person selected to be the killer has to discreetly ﬁnd
a way to wink at as many students as he or she came.
When the killer is doing this he or she is picking one
person at a time to die.
If a student happens to look at the killer without
knowing and the killer winks or makes a small gesture
to the student, he or she now than is dead.
Once a student is picked to die he or she must either sit
down or eliminate themselves from the game.
