PLAY IDEA OF THE DAY

Octopus

SUITABLE FOR AGES 8+

Two people are chosen to be the 'octopuses.' They stand in the middle of the field with all other players on one side. The referee calls octopus and the children all run from one side to the other trying not to get caught by the octopus. If they are caught they must sit down and become seaweed, meaning they can tag someone if they run by them, but they cannot move from where they are sitting, instead they can only tag by using their hands. The last person not to be caught is the winner.

REQUIRES MORE THAN 4 PLAYERS

OUTDOORS

TIME NEEDED: 60+ MINS
