Grade level: 1-8
Equipment: None
Game Description: ‘Everybody’s It’ is a classic all-time favorite tag game with non-stop action! Everybody is it, and everybody can also get tagged.

If players tag eachother at the same time then they play a round of ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors’ to see who sits. continue reading…
