How to Play Freeze Tag


Freeze Tag is a variation on the classic It-Tag Game.  The main difference is that when a person is tagged, he or she must be “frozen” (not move) until a teammate tags the person to release them.

  • Materials Required:  A large outdoor area free of obstacles.
  • Number of Players Required: 4-10 required.
  • Time Required: Varies. About 20 minutes.

How Do You Play Freeze Tag?

To play Freeze Tag, begin by choosing a person to be “It.”  The person who is “it” is the player who can “freeze” other players.  When the game begins, everyone runs away from the person who is “it.”  The one who is “it” chases after other players, trying to tag (touch) them.  If a person is successfully tagged, he or she must “freeze” in place (stand still and not move).  Frozen people cannot move until another player un-freezes them (touches them to return them to normal).

The player who is “it” wins by freezing all players.
