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:
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.
