How to Play: Red Light Green Light

• Ages four and up

• Noncompetitive

How to Play

• Establish a start and finish line.
• "IT" (usually the birthday child at a party) stands at the finish line. The other players spread out across the start line.
• "IT" yells, "Green Light!" turns away from the players and counts out loud from 1 to 10, during which time the players run toward the finish line.
• When "IT" reaches 10, "IT" yells, "Red Light!" and turns back to the players. At the sound of the words "Red Light," the players stop running and freeze.
• "IT" or an adult coach on the sidelines sends anyone still moving back to the start line.
• "IT" yells, "Green Light!" and the game continues until someone reaches the finish line and tags "IT." The first person to do that is the next "IT."
