Flag Tag or Tail Tag

Format: Individual activity

Materials: Tail or flag (cut up some old sheets or use plastic grocery bags)

Set Up: Kids spread out across gym or field.

Object: Pull out tails; try to get as many tails as possible.


  1. Kids put tails into side of pants, pocket or belt.
  2. Kids run around the gym trying to pull out tails, while keeping their own tail.
  3. If kid’s tail is pulled, he/she can keep playing, but as soon as the kid collects another tail, he/she must put it back into side of pants and then re-enter the game.
  4. Alternatively, a trainer can make extra bags available if needed.
  5. Keep playing for 5 minutes.
  6. When time is called, see who has collected the most bags to determine a “winner”
