Tunnel Tag


Intro: Grab you siblings and neighbors for a game of tunnel tag

Here’s how to play:
One player is It. When a player is tagged, he must remain frozen in place, with his legs spread apart, creating a tunnel. He can be unfrozen if a non-It player crawls under the leg tunnel. When all the players are frozen, a new It is chosen, and play begins again.
