This fitness game for kids puts a twist on the classic game of tag.


  • Large space


  • Appoint one student to be “It,” and have him chase and tag the other players.
  • Once tagged, players are “stuck in the mud” and must stand still with their legs apart.
  • Players who aren’t stuck can free people who are stuck by crawling through their legs.
  • Once players are freed, they can run around again. Otherwise, they must stay in the mud.
  • Continue playing until all players have been tagged. Then, choose another student to be “It.”
