Tail Swipe

Grade level: K-8
Equipment: Tails (flags or scarves)
Game Description: Grab the tails off of other players, but try not to lose yours! This is an action-packed game that gets students moving and laughing. It’s a great stand-alone physical education game, or a fun lead-up game to flag football.

  1. Give each student a tail or flag to wear.
  2. On the signal, players go around trying to swipe the tail off of other players and try to dodge others so that they don’t get theirs grabbed.
  3. Players aren’t ‘out’ if they lose their tail – they can still go around trying to grab other tails.
  4. Play until no more tails are left!
