Catch The Flies

This game can be played in the pool or on land.

The object of the game is for the "spider" (the person who is "it") to try and tag all of the passing "flies" (everyone who has not yet been caught). When the spider catches the flies they become part of the web. The flies that are still buzzing around must try to avoid the web as well as the spider.

Set up an area with boundaries (if the boundaries are crossed then the fly who crossed them automatically becomes part of the web). The flies line up at one end and the spider stands in the middle and cries out, "I am the spider, of this web I am king. Try to get past me and feel my sting."

The flies try to swim/run across the web as the spider tries to tag them. If tagged, they become part of the web. Keeping one foot planted, everyone who is part of the web tries to reach out and tag the flies running by, turning those players into the web as well. Once the flies reach the other side, the spider and flies say the chant and everything is repeated all over again.

The game ends when all of the flies become part of the web. The last fly tagged becomes the new spider.
