Everybody’s It

Summary: A high energy variation on tag where everyone gets to be “it”!


  1. Explain that in this game, everyone is “it”.
  2. Before the game begins all players should spread out. When play begins, anyone can tag anyone. Similarly, anyone can be tagged by anyone.

  4. The game ends when everyone is sitting.

Debrief Questions:

  • Was this harder or easier than normal tag?
  • What does it mean to be “aware of your surroundings”? Why is that an important skill for this game?
