American Touch Tag Day

Tag! You're it! On October 8th, American Touch Tag Day celebrates the classic childhood game and encourages children of all ages to play. The game lends itself to long hours of playing outside at recess, after school, and on weekends. The best way to celebrate is to get out in the fresh air, running around, and tagging someone.


This game has been played around the world with a variety of names and rules dating back to ancient Rome. In an attempt to "tag" or touch them, a player will usually be running around, chasing other players. There are no squads, scores, or equipment in the majority of this game. Usually, the aim is either being untagged or safe.

When is National Chess Day? As a way to get kids up and moving, the classic game is ideal for physical education classes. Often, students are divided into teams and given boundaries with safe zones.
