Blob Tag

Grade level: K-4
Equipment: None
Game Description: Blob Tag is a tag game – chasing and fleeing – that has players join together to form blobs once they’re tagged. When blobs get too big, they break off to form smaller blobs. The game continues until all players have been caught and have formed blobs.

Line Tag

Grade level: K-6
Equipment: Pinnies
Game Description: The premise is simple: stay on the lines and try not to get tagged. If tagged, sit down and become a road block until the freer comes around and frees you. Great directional PE game, very popular.

Ollie-Ollie-Octopus

Grade level: K-4
Equipment: None
Game Description: An all-time classic. Ollie Ollie Octopus gets students saying a rhyming chant, and then running across to the other side without getting tagged by the Octopus. Players who are tagged sit down where tagged and become ‘Seaweed’ – they wave their arms and can try to tag other players as they run by. Perhaps one of the most popular early year level games.
