In this twist on flashlight tag, players imagine that their backyard is the night sky and a soccer ball is the full moon. The mission: be the first person to get to the moon. Save this game for after the sun goes down -- the darker, the better.
In an open area, one player, the Astronaut, stands with a flashlight near the soccer ball moon.
He yells, "Blast off!" then closes his eyes and starts to count while the others run and hide.
When he reaches 29 -- the number of days in a lunar cycle -- the Astronaut calls out, "Full moon."
Players then try to grab the ball without being caught in the flashlight's beam.
To make things more interesting, have the Astronaut turn off the light between tags to sneak up on players.
When a player is caught in the light, he's out. The first person to pick up the ball or the last player left to be tagged is the new Astronaut.
