SUPPLIES: 2-3 Pool noodle halves and 15-30 kids. If you have more kids, just assign more mosquitos. If you have 15 or fewer kids, you’ll want to only assign 1 mosquito.
SET UP: Create boundaries for your play area, similar to any other tag game. Remind kids that they aren’t allowed to run outside the game boundaries. We recommend that you use soft cones, rope, or some other physical barrier that’s not too dangerous!
PLAY IT: Assign 2-3 mosquitos (or taggers) who have to hold the pool noodle on their forehead. They can only use the pool noodle to tag people, and it cannot be removed from their forehead at all. Then…
The only way players are “safe” from being tagged is when they are yelling, “DEEP WOODS OFF!” (Another great debrief idea… helping one another out!) Got questions? Don’t understand? Post your questions in the comments and we’ll be happy to answer them for you! Have fun out there!
