Lava Tag



Equipment: None


This game is best played outside.





Choose a player to be the Tagger. Players spread out in the designated area. The Tagger tries to tag another player. Players can be safe by standing on an object (such as a log or a bench), or by lifting themselves in the air by holding onto a tree or a fence. When their feet aren't touching the ground they cannot be tagged. If a player is successfully tagged then they become the new Tagger.

You may need to introduce an anti-"puppy-guarding" rule, such as the Tagger may not hang around one player who is safe for more than five seconds. You may also want to have a rule that players cannot stay in the same safe spot for more than ten seconds.
