Summary: Active, fun game for kids. Get away from the people who are “it”, or else you’ll be frozen!

Goal: Avoid being tagged OR freeze the entire team.

**Note: Before playing, let everyone know the boundaries of the playing/running area. If anyone exceeds those boundaries, they will automatically become frozen.**

How to Play Freeze Tag:
1. Ask for two volunteers*. These two people will be “it”.

2. When you say “go”, the people who are “it” will try to tag as many people as possible. If one of volunteers tags another person, the tagged person is frozen (and needs to stand still) in his or her place. The only way to “unfreeze” a person is to have an active unfrozen person tag a frozen person. If a person becomes unfrozen, he/she can run again.

3. The people who are “it” tries to freeze the entire team. If the volunteers freeze the entire team, the volunteers win. If at least one person remains unfrozen by the end of 3 minutes, then the team wins and you can choose two different volunteers.

*You can have more volunteers, depending upon the size of your group. You can also add more people who are “it” as the game progresses.
