How to Play
  • When the leader of the game calls GO, the players can run around and move in any way they want.
  • When the leader says “5-4-3-2-1 FROZEN FIIISH”, the players must lie down and be as still as possible.
  • The leader walks among the fishes, looking for movement.
  • If the leader sees movement, the children get back up and move again.
  • The children have to try and stay still for as long as possible to beat their own record.
Change it up / Alternatives / Additional Options
  • If lying down is difficult or unrealistic for anyone in the group, the participants can remain still in any position they like.
