Red Light Green Light
Summary: Red Light Green Light is a game where children are directed to stop and go until they reach a finish line.
Ages: From 4 to 10
Recommended Number of Players:
Between 3 and 30
No equipment required
No prior set-up required
How to Play:
Choose one player to be the "traffice light." The remaining players are the cars. The traffic light stands about 20 to 25 feet away from the cars facing away so the traffic light cannot see the cars. The traffic light then yells GREEN LIGHT and the cars begin to run toward the traffic light. But the traffic light may say RED LIGHT at any time which means the cars must all come to an immediate stop. Any car that moves after RED LIGHT is called must go back to the starting line. The first car to touch the traffic light gets to be the traffic light for the next round.
