American Touch Tag Day – October 8th

October 8th is American Touch Tag Day, a celebration of the game played in many schoolyards worldwide. Yes, there is actually a day for this.

Some general rules for playing tag:

• Be careful where you touch. Private body parts are off limits.

• Use a gentle touch, no injuries are wanted.

• Be careful of your fingernails. Scratching is not very kind.

• Use only your hands for tagging.

It’s a beautiful day here in Texas today. It would be the perfect day to get outside with your kids and blow off some steam after they get home from school. It’s also an excellent form of exercise. You can make it fun by getting creative with the game as well. For instance, people wearing blue must chase the people wearing red or boys chase the girls, etc., etc.

Have fun, stay safe and get some exercise.
