Grade Level: 3-5, 6-8

Choose 4-5 players to be the taggers. Give each tagger a yarn ball. On the teacher’s signal, players try to avoid being tagged by a ball thrown by one of the taggers. If a player is tagged, they must go out of the game and throw and catch a yarn ball to themselves 10 times before re-entering. Change taggers and play again.
