What You Need:
- A few friends
- A large play area
- Everybody playing lines up at a “starting point”, and one person is chosen to be “it”.
- The person chosen to be “it” hides while the rest of the players yell “Starlight, starbright, I hope to see a ghost tonight!”
- The players then start running and try to reach “home base” without being tagged.
- If you become tagged, you become “it” along with the other person.
This game is especially fun outdoors after dark, and when the starting point and home base are far apart from one another. The person who is “it” should be easily able to hide in between. If you are playing in someone’s yard, you can also make the starting and ending point the same, such as the front door, but the players have to go around the house at least once.
