Time15 – 20 minutes

Summary: Run when the person says green. Freeze if the person says red!

Goal: Be the first person to tag the person in the front.

**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 Red Light Green Light:
1. Start the game out as being the person at the front. Have the kids line up on the other side of the room.

2. Rules of the game: If you turn your back and say “green light”, the kids try to run and tag you. If you jump to face forward and say “red light”, then the kids have to freeze- if you see anyone moving while there’s a “red light”, you need to call the person by name and they have to start over from the beginning.

3. The first person to tag you is the winner of the game- this person can be “it” and be in front of the room to start a new game.

– To make things more interesting, you can ask the kids to hop on one foot, crab walk, jump backwards, skip, or other actions to reach you.
