How to Play Seagulls and Crows Game:
1. Split everyone into two teams. Assign one team to be the "crows" and the other team as "seagulls". Have each team line up parallel with each other (facing each other), with about three feet between them.

2. Explain the rules. In the game, you will be telling a story. If you say the word "crow" in the story, the crows have to run back to their ending line/end of the room. The seagulls will try to tag the crows before they reach the end of their line/room- If the seagulls tag a crow, the crow becomes part of the seagulls' team. Same goes vice versa- if you say the word "seagull" in your story, then the crows try to tag the seagulls before they run back to their side of the room.

3. Start with a practice round- tell a story and somehow add the word "seagull" or "crow". (Example: "Yesterday, I went over to my grandma's house. She has 100 cats and 20 seagulls!" or "At the zoo, I see lots of different animals. Crabs, kangeroos, cats...and especially crows."

4. Start the game- Whoever has the most players on one side at the end of 15 minutes wins the game (or, if one team tags everyone of their opposing team, they win the game).
