You will need
A large clear space that is marked off in a square as the running area and a whistle. Clear any table and chairs and other objects that could tripped over to the side of the rooms.
How to do it
- Tell siblings they have to stay inside the marked running area
- Say ‘Pair up with someone who is about the same height as you and who you think might run as fast as you.’
- When they have paired up tell them one person is to be A and one person is to be B. Ask all the A’s to put their hand up, then all the B’s to put their hand up.
- Tell them ‘When the whistle sounds all the As chase and try to catch the Bs. Then just like in ordinary tag, when you get caught, you then become the chaser.’
