Summary: Fun gym game for kids- everyone has to run on the lines to play.

Goal: To be the last person in the game (left untagged).

How to Play the Line Tag Game:
1. Pick two volunteers. These volunteers will be “it” for the game.

2. Everyone else needs to be spaced out on the court lines. The purpose of the game is to not be tagged by people who are “it”. Everyone, including those who are “it”, can only run on the court lines- if someone runs off the line or jumps to another line, then they have to sit down and become a “block” (you’ll have to watch for this) .

3. The people who are “it” try to tag everyone. Once a person is tagged, he/she must sit down at that exact spot and become a block. The people running on the lines cannot run past the blocks (the blocks are barriers) - only the people who are “it” can run past the blocks and tag everyone else. Whoever is the last person standing wins the game.
