7-Up Tag

Designate a large play area with clear boundaries with room for students to run. Pick 7 people to be taggers. Have the taggers put on colored pinnies. 7 taggers stand in the play area while the rest of the group stands on a boundary line. The students on the boundary line turn around and close their eyes and stick out their thumb. 7 taggers go around and tap one thumb each. When they are done, the taggers say “Heads Up, 7-up!” The students that were tagged then have to chase the 7 taggers to find out who tapped their thumb. If a tagger did not tap a student’s thumb, they must say “Not me!” The students that were tagged continue tagging the original taggers until they find out who tagged them. Staff can do a countdown to start a new round.
