My kids came up with a game that is fun to play, they call it camouflage tag!
You must have at least three people to play this game with, great that I have three children so they can play alone if they want, but sometimes they enjoy having myself and/or my fiance join in the game!
A person is designated as the tagger. This person must run around trying to tag another person, once tagged that other person is it. Repeat, as with normal game of tag.
The trick to this game of tag is that if the tagger gets too close and you want to stay ‘safe’ you can cover your eyes and say ‘camouflage’. A person who is a non tagger can do this as a form of ‘safety’ during game play but they can only do this for a 5-10 second duration. The person in ‘camouflage’ can walk around but must remain with eyes covered to be ‘safe’ from being tagged.
This is a fun gist to the normal version of tag where maybe you have a safety spot for the non taggers to go.
I honestly have had much fun just watching my kids play this game together because it’s always fun for a parent to see their children getting along, but I do love to play too. It’s so funny when the kids actually scare me by coming around the corner unexpectedly to tag me!
I hope your family enjoys this no cost way of having fun inside on a rainy or snowy day as much as we do!
