Game: Octopus Tag

Play this game with kids for loads of fun! Follow these steps.

  1. Create two home bases on either end of a large play area.
  2. Choose someone to be the Octopus.
  3. Have all the other children start on one home base.
  4. Once kids leave home base, they have to get to the other base before getting tagged by the Octopus.

Once an Octopus has six people, it breaks in two. Play until all children have been tagged.
