Leadership Inspirations Activities
A game of tag played in partner pairs
Type Of Activity
Get your group warmed up with this game of tag where participants try to tag their partner.
- Set boundaries for the playing area. It should be a clear, open space free of obstacles.
- Have participants each find a partner. This partner is the person they will be playing tag with.
- Decide who will be ‘it’ first.
- There are three rules:
- They must stay within the boundaries.
- There are no tag backs. When you are tagged, you must spin around 3 times before chasing your partner.
- No running.
- Play for about a minute then tell everyone to freeze.
- You can continue play this way, switch partners, or try a variation below!
- Play with one eye shut.
- Pairs find another partner group. Hook elbows with their own partner, and play tag against the other team.
- You can then transition this game to Rock Paper Scissors Posse, in which each partner plays Rock, Paper, Scissors, and the loser joins the winning team as a cheer section.
