    Another tag game that quite enjoyable.

    Heres a variant that doubles as a name game. Also works best as a second or third name game. Instead of clothes pegs, use 3 – 5 pieces of masking tape and write your own name on it. Much like the clothes pegs, the aim is to get rid of your masking tape whilst trying not to get any masking tape stuck to you.

    At the end of the allocated time, everyone gets back in a circle and counts how many tags they have on them with the person with the least amount winning that round.

    To reset the game, individuals try to return the pieces of tape back to their rightful owner, thus reinforcing the learning of names.

    You might need to keep a marker and additional masking tape for quick name tag repairs as masking tape isn’t very durable during this game.
