Shark Bait

Share this page

If your children enjoy playing ‘it’ out of the pool then they’ll have a whale of a time – or should we say shark of a time – playing ‘it’ in the water.

To play Shark Bait everyone lines up against the side. One person is chosen to be the shark while all the others are fish. The shark shouts ‘shark’ and all the fish swim away. The shark then shouts ‘fish’ and goes hunting.

As soon as a fish is captured, he or she becomes the shark and goes in search of food.
