Sock Tag

Sock Tag
This kids came up with this simple twist on tag. Ball up two socks or one missed matched sock. Head outdoors and start a game of tag. Run until you get hit by a sock ball. If you get hit you have to sit out for a count of ten and then you can join the game again. Or break up into teams, if you get hit you are out. The last team with any members who have not been hit is the winner.

If the weather is miserable outside you could play indoors. Each child should set up a fort to hide behind. The fort could just be as simple as a chair sideways – just something to hide behind. Ball up at least 4 socks per player. Start a snowball fight with the socks.

This activity encourages:

  • physical activity
  • eye hand coordination
  • strategy

Have fun!
