Dead Ants

Dead Ants

Inspire! Ice Breakers & Openers




Tag game


Set a boundary. Ask for two volunteers to become anteaters. The anteater's mission is to stun as many ants as possible by tagging them. The ant's must avoid the anteater and work together to save their ant friends who have been stunned. When an ant is tagged by the anteater, the individual sits on the ground and calls for help. Stunned ants cannot move from the spot, but may wave their arms and legs to alert other ants to their situation. To make a rescue, four ants must carefully lift and carry the stunned ant to a location just outside of the play area. When all four ants have locked into positions for a rescue, they cannot be targeted by the anteater. Once an ant has been rescued, he or she returns with the rescuers to the game.
