Any item that can be use as the ‘Bacon’ .. Ball, plastic bowling pin, frisbee…
Get the bacon, score points, have FUN!
As the game goes on and the kids get smarter (try to wait for the other person to pick up the ‘Bacon’ so they can get the easy tag for the point, etc) we try to mix it up a little.
When we play, we call out a second and sometimes third number to get a few more kids out there to cause distractions and the like.
We also play it on a sand vollyball court and use a ‘bacon’ that we can bury. Have the kids with their backs to the center so they can’t see where we put the bacon.
Lots of other various can be make to keep in interesting.
