Circle Tag




Equipment: None


Players form a circle. They stand, holding the hands of the players to either side, with a wide gap in-between each person. Two players are chosen to start as It. They are partners. One starts inside the circle and the other starts outside the circle. They run around the circle until the person on the inside of the circle chooses a pair to compete against by running under their arms. The player must join hands with his/her partner on the outside of the circle and then both pairs must run around the outside of the circle (while holding hands) and try to be the first pair to go back through the vacated space. The first pair to do that get to stand in the space and the other pair must start as It for the next round.
