A stalking tag game.
Sent in by Ms Lisa, teacher at Primrose Primary School
“I am a teacher at Primrose and one game the kids love to play is called Mr. Fox. This game can be played with almost any age group. I play it with the after-schoolers which are ages 4-11.”
One person is Mr Fox and stands away from a safety zone where the other players wait, the other kids then ask Mr Fox, “Mr Fox, Mr Fox, What time is it?” Mr. Fox answers with something like “9 o’clock”. What ever the time mentioned that is the number of steps the other have to take, in this case 9 steps. However, if the fox says midnight he/she chases the other players back to the safety zone. The first player they catch becomes the fox.
