Fox and Food

Materials: Handkerchief, stick, beanbag, or another distinctive object.

Objective: Fox is to guard its food while predators try to steal it.

How to Play: One person (fox) stands guard over the food source (distinctive object). Everyone else (predators) forms a circle around him and tries to steal the food without being tagged by the fox. The fox can move as far from the food as he dares. When tagged by the fox, the predator is frozen in place unit the end of the game (when all are tagged or someone steals the food).

Variation: Blindfold the fox, forcing it to use other senses besides sight. Rather than tagging the predators, the fox has only to point directly at an intruder to freeze him.
