Gum Tag


Get 4 students to come to the front of the room. On a table, for each person, have an oversized shirt, 2 oven mitts and a jar full of hard chewing gum (the harder the better, takes more time). Each member is to run from a certain spot up to the table, put on the oversized shirt, then the oven mitts, reach into the bowl and grab a piece of gum. With the oven mitts on, they must unwrap the gum, chew it, and then blow a bubble.

After they blow a bubble, they take off the mitts, then the oversized shirt and then tag you (or whoever’s leading the game time). The first tagger wins.
