This is an active game where everyone takes part, which is played until everyone is caught.
There are two variations on this game:
One or more people are chosen to have the chalk and they are ‘it’
Everyone else is free to run around the room and the person with the chalk has to catch them and put a chalk cross on their shoe. Once caught, they help catch others and the person with the chalk tags them with a cross on the shoe.
The last person caught gets to be the one who is ‘it’ for the next game.
End To End:
Everyone is lined up at one end of the room and when the whistle goes they have to get to the opposite end without being caught and tagged with a chalk cross on their shoe.
When caught, they join the people in the middle and help catch others until everyone is caught
