Go rainbow-tastic with this bright and colourful game of tag using a selection of vibrant Resene Colours.
Resene Ground Games with Mark Rayner - Project 07
You will need: Area of asphalt measuring approximately 5.6m x 10m (prepped first with Resene Moss & Mould Killer and then waterblasted), chalk, duct tape, large set square, low tack masking tape, marker pen, paintbrush, paint roller and tray, Resene Lumbersider tinted to the following colours: Resene Bright Red, Resene Fizz, Resene Gobstopper, Resene Outrageous, Resene Sports Star, Resene Surfs Up and Resene Top Secret, Resene Membrane Roofing Primer, Resene Tennis Court Coating (green), tape measure.
To get the look: When applying Resene Tennis Court Coating, brush or roller the first coat in one direction, and the second coat across in the other direction to get even coverage.
Other ideas for play: If bigger children or teens are going to be playing the game enlarge the template squares to 600mm, making the playing area 8.4m x 15m.
Number of players: 2 teams of up to 30.
Additional equipment: Whistle.
How to play: A player (or teacher) is selected to act as referee. Each team stands in their rectangular court and when the referee blows the whistle, the players run randomly around the court. The whistle is blown a second time and each player has to run to their nearest coloured square. The referee chooses one person from each team who is standing on a red square and when the whistle is blown a third time, each of these players has to run and 'tag' a team member who is standing on an orange square, and then they go and stand on the larger red square. The orange player then 'tags' a yellow player and the game continues until the colours of the rainbow are complete. The player who is violet, then tags another red player and so on. The winning team is the one that has completed most rainbows (or has fewest players left in play).
