Pool Elbow Tag

2.8 based on 26 ratings

What You Need:

  • Swimming pool
  • At least 6 kids (ideally many more, depending on the size of the pool)

What You Do:

  1. Have the players gather in the water.
  2. Ask one child to be the "chaser."
  3. Designate another player as the "runner."
  4. Everyone else playing should pair up and link elbows.
  5. Start the game with the chaser chasing after, and trying to tag the runner.
  6. The runner can find "safety" by linking his elbow to the elbow of someone who's already in a pair.
  7. When the runner links their elbow to a pair, the original member of the pair becomes the new runner.
  8. To stay "safe" linked pairs should try to avoid the runner by swimming around the pool.
  9. When a chaser finally tags the runner, the roles are reversed for the next round of play!
