Freeze Tag


Who hasn't played freeze tag? Not only can an unlimited number of kids play, it's also a great way to expend a little pent-up energy! So round up all the kids you can find, and designate one person to be "it."

Whoever is "it" chases the other kids around, trying to tag them. If a child is tagged, he must freeze in place until another child who isn't "it" unfreezes him by tagging him again. Keep playing until everyone is exhausted, but just remember to switch whoever is "it" from time to time to make it a fair game.

For a little twist on this game, try shadow tag.
