How to Play Snake in the Grass:
1. Pick two volunteers. These volunteers will be the “snakes” for the game. The “snakes” have to get on their hands and knees. Explain the rules.
2. “Snakes” can only crawl with their hands and knees. The purpose of the game is to not be tagged by the “snakes”. If a “snakes” tag someone, the person becomes a “snake”. Everyone can only run on within the carpeted area boundaries. If someone runs out of the boundaries, they automatically become “snakes”.
3. To start the game, everyone else needs to use one finger to touch the “snakes”. Once you say “Snake In the Grass”, the game begins and everyone can run around. The last person standing wins the game.
