1 GAME: Safe Zone Tag!!!

Game / Bible / Life Connection:  

  1. Show Players the boundaries that the game will be played in.
  2. Choose a Player to be “It.”
  3. The Player selected to be “It” then chases the others, attempting to get close enough to “Tag” one of them (touching them with a hand) while the others try to escape.
  4. If a Player gets tagged they now become “It” and that Player chases the others.
  5. Designate an area for the Players to be safe, this is called the “Safe Zone.” Players can run to the “Safe Zone” to take a 10 second rest. While in the “Safe Zone” the “It” Player is not allowed to tag them.
  6. Continue playing as time allows.
