Fox and Rabbit

Game Description: 
A warm-up or cool-down tag game that encourages teamwork. No equipment needed.
For the Fox to get the Rabbit, the Rabbit to stay away from the Fox, and the rest of the group to help the Rabbit to stay clear of the Fox.
Game Rules: 
The leader designates one person to be the Fox and one person to be the Rabbit. Everyone else holds hands to create a circle. The Rabbit starts inside the circle and the Fox starts outside the circle. The Fox tries to tag the Rabbit. The children in the circle move to prevent the Fox from tagging the Rabbit, but they cannot let go of each other’s hands. Both the Fox and the Rabbit can move inside and outside of the circle, which can also move. Once the Fox tags the Rabbit, the Rabbit becomes the Fox and someone from the circle becomes the Rabbit. The game is over when everyone has had a chance to be in all 3 roles.
Saftey Considerations: 
Remind children that they cannot bust through the hands of the circle. They must go underneath the hands of the people in the circle to go inside or outside of the circle.
