Pairs Tag


In this version of tag, the children cooperate in pairs and will have a high-intensity pace when they run to tag another pair.


  1. All the children form a pair by holding hands.
  2. One pair (or several pairs if many children are playing) are the taggers and shall tag another pair.
  3. When a pair is tagged, they become the taggers and try to tag another pair.


  • To increase the intensity of the game, you can have several pairs of taggers.
  • By, for instance, making the play area smaller, the children must be aware of the other players to avoid collisions.
