Everyone must be able to run.
This game will really wear out a “wild” group of kids!!!
Everyone makes a circle, facing inward and couples up with the person next to them by hooking arms.
One person is chosen to be “It” which leaves his/her partner alone. That person has to hook up with another person in the circle by running around the outside and hooking up to someone before “It” tags him/her.
He runs (or sneaks) around the circle and hooks arms with someone, which means that person’s partner has to run and hook up before they are tagged by “It”.
If the person running is tagged by the “It” the two players switch roles and the runner becomes the new “It.”
The game continues until everyone has had a chance to run…meaning when a person hooks up, it has to be with someone who has never run before. A new “It” can be chosen or that can signal that the game is over.
