Egg Tag

Game Description: 
Tag game to get children moving!
Try not to get tagged or else you turn into an egg!
Game Rules: 
There are three kinds of people; runners, taggers, and chefs. The runners try to avoid being tagged by the taggers. In the event the runner get tagged they must turn into an egg by putting their body into a ball. The only way they get back into the game is if the chef 'cracks' the egg open by tapping the eggs head gently.
Saftey Considerations: 
Remind children to keep their heads up while running.
Adaptations (optional): 
Have children perform an egg roll after getting cracked to practice tumbling.
