Freeze Tag (15 mins)

Set up: Each player with a ball, one without.

Organisation: The player without the ball attempts to tag other players. If tagged then, player is now frozen, picks up ball above their head and calls out ‘help!’ with their feet shoulder width apart. Player can be unfrozen if another player plays a ball between their legs or if the parent and player count to 10 with each other

Progressions:

Easier – start with no balls and players hold hands out to their side. Player is freed by going under an arm. Progress to going between legs.Harder-have players who are ‘it’ and they tag players to freeze them.
