The Animal Game:
You need at least 10 children playing, including a caller. All the players must first line up in front of the caller. The caller whispers an animal name to each player in the game. Once all the names are given out, the caller gives them ten seconds to run around. After, the caller starts calling animals out. When the caller calls an animal that person has to run from everyone and all the other players have to tag that person to get him or her out.

The caller does not have to wait until the person is out to call the next animal. The call can call another animal before or after the person is tagged. This goes on until there are only two players left. The remaining players must go to a designated area with boundaries. If they step or are tagged, they are out. The last one standing is the winner. The winner will be the caller in the next game.
