1 GAME: Band Aid Tag with Volunteer Doctors

Game / Bible / Life Connection:  

  1. Show Players the boundaries that the game will be played in.
  2. One Player will be chosen to be the “Tagger.”
  3. The “Tagger’s” job is to chase around the Players trying to tag each Player three times.
  4. Player’s job is to avoid being tagged.
  5. Once a Player has been tagged three times they must go see a “Doctor.” The “Doctors” will be Players that volunteer to sit out on the sideline helping the other Players get healed and back on the field.
  6. The first time a Player gets “tagged,” they have to place one hand on or near the spot where they were tagged, like applying a “Band-Aid.”
  7. If they are tagged a second time have them place another “Band-Aid” (hand on or near) the second spot.
  8. If they get tagged a third time, they must go to the sidelines, find a doctor and do five (5) jumping jacks to get “healed” and, then, rejoin the game.
  9. When the Game Zone Leader says, “Ready, Set, Go!” then the “Tagger” will start chasing the Players trying to tag them.
  10. Whenever the Game Zone Leader says, “Freeze!” everyone must stop and he/she will select a new “Tagger.”
  11. Then, he/she will say, “Ready, Set, Go!” to resume the game.
  12. Continue playing as time allows.
  13. The game is over when the Game Zone Leader says, “Freeze, time’s up!”
