Here's a great game for summer fun outdoors.
One person is the Octopus and stands in the middle of the
yard. Your friends stand at one end of the yard and the Octopus says
"William, William (or whatever name),swim across the ocean".
"William" runs across the yard and the Octopus tries to tag him. If he gets tagged, he becomes a frozen sea creature and tries to block the path of another "swimmer".
Those who make it across the yard "win"! Everyone can take a turn being the Octopus.
