Name of Group Game: Hospital Tag

Small Group (more than 6 people) to
Large Group (20 + people)

Age: Elementary School

Time15 – 20 minutes

Summary: Active, fun game for kids. If you’re tagged three times, you’re out of the game!

Goal: Avoid being tagged OR tag the entire team.

**Note: Before playing, let everyone know the boundaries of the playing/running area. If anyone exceeds those boundaries, they will automatically be out of the game.**

How to Play Hospital Tag:
1. Ask for two volunteers*. These two people will be “it”.

2. When you say “go”, the people who are “it” will try to tag as many people as possible. If one of volunteers tags another person, the tagged person needs to grab the place where he/she was tagged- as if injured- and run around (for example, if someone tags another person on the knee, the person needs to run while grabbing his/her knee). After a person is tagged three times, the person is out of the game.

3. The last person remaining in the game is the winner.

*You can have more volunteers, depending upon the size of your group. You can also add more people who are “it” as the game progresses.
