Starfish tag

How many people can you turn into starfish?

As with Shark Bait, Starfish Tag is derived from another classic playground game that is loads of fun in the pool.

One of you is the ‘tagger’ and has to try and tag all the others in the water. Once someone is tagged that person has to stand still until they are set free.

Tagged swimmers can only be set free if someone else taps them on the shoulder or swims under their arms or legs.

Try setting a time limit to the game and see who can win the most tags.
