September 27: Dog Week

image from

In honor of Dog Week, consider this tag game which kids in a school-age care program made up:

Dog and Cat


  • a ball (optional)


  1. The dog starts in the middle of the room or playing area.
  2. The cats start on either side of the play area.
  3. The dog yells a color (or other means of describing at least two players) and those people must run to the other side of the play area.
  4. Anyone tagged sits down right there and, with legs crossed and bottom on the floor, may reach out to tag others throughout the game.
  5. The last cat becomes the new dog.
