Styrofoam Pool Noodle
How to Play
This game can be played inside or outside but the boundaries for the playing field must be clearly communicated to the group. Have one, two or three be "it" depending on the size of the group. Cut a styrofoam pool noodle in half or use two pieces of foam pipe insulation available at any hardware store.
The person who is "it" holds one piece of styrofoam (about 18" long) in each hand and chases people within the boundaries. The person who is "it" attempts to hit people below the knees with either piece of styrofoam. When someone is tagged, they hold hands with the person who tagged them and with their outside hands each holds a piece of the styrofoam. They are now both "it." They chase after other players. As they tag people they hold their hands and pass the insulation to the outside person on each end of the line. The object is to be the last person tagged.
