Red Light, Green Light

How to Play

1 player is chosen to be the Stop Light.

All other players line up about 15 steps away, facing the Stop Light.

The Stop Light stands with his back to the other players. If he says GREEN LIGHT, the players move toward the Stop Light. When he says RED LIGHT, he spins around and the players must stop on the spot.

If the Stop Light sees a player moving, that player must take 5 giant steps backward.

Play continues when the Stop Light turns back around and shouts GREEN LIGHT.

The first player to reach the Stop Light is the next Stop Light.

Change the Fun

Vary the movement. Instead of walking toward the Stop Light, players can hop, jump, gallop, etc.

Add a YELLOW LIGHT command for slower travel.

Use coloured paper or scarves instead of voice commands.
