How to Play: Pom Pon
What you need: You need a large outdoor area with a boundary (a tree, a building or a rope) on each side.
How to play: Choose one player to be "it." "It" will stand in the middle of the playing area. All other players will line up along one of the boundaries.
The rules: At the starting signal, players must run to the opposite boundary without getting tagged by "it." If players are tagged, they must help "it" tag other players. Players continue to run from boundary to boundary until only one player remains untagged.
How to win: The last player remaining untagged is the winner.
What else you need to know: The winner has the option of being "it" in the next round.
