Keeping Kids Active: Capture the Flag

    By: Amy Franzwa

    Capture The Flag is not only active, it requires strategy and teamwork.  All you need is two pieces of different colored fabric.  Divide players into two teams and the playing area into two halves, one side for each team. Each team places their flag somewhere on their side of the play area.  Each team tries to capture the other team’s flag and bring it to their side of the field without being tagged.  Players can only be tagged when they are on the other team’s side.  However, teams cannot forget to defend their flag.  The first team to capture the other team’s flag is the winner.  Do you remember playing Capture the Flag? Or, do you have other great ideas for keeping kids active?  Share your thoughts in the comments below.
