Zombie Tag

You will need:

Open space (best to have a visible boundary that children are aware of)

Spooky music (I really like “In the Hall of the Mountain King” from Peer Gynt, Suite No. 1, op. 46)


What to do:

Step 1

Explain the rules of the game. Choose the Zombie Master. The Zombie Master will choose 2 zombies to start, and the will walk around slowly, zombie-like, arms outstretched and moaning. Everyone is to use “walking feet”. If a zombie touches a “human”, the human becomes a zombie too. At any point, the Zombie Master can call out someone’s name. If the Zombie Master calls out their name, they become a zombie.

Continue calling out names until there is a sufficient number of zombies that will ultimately lead to a zombie apocalypse.

Step 2:

Play the game
