Keeping Kids Active: Red Light, Green Light

    By: Dawn Juntilla

    Red Light, Green light is an easy game for younger players to understand.   One person is chosen as the “Stoplight”.  The rest of the players stand in a line 15 to 20 feet from the stoplight.  When the Stoplight calls “green light” the other players move towards the stoplight.  When the Stoplight calls “red light” the other players must stop.  If they keep moving, they are out.  If they are able to touch the Stoplight, they win and they are the Stoplight for the next game.   Do you remember playing Red Light, Green Light? Or, do you have other great ideas for keeping kids active?  Share your thoughts in the comments below.
