Canadian Four Corners Game

How to Play the fun outdoor kids game of Canadian Four Corners
(For an inside classroom game version see Four Corners)

What you need to play:
5 players and a large square drawn in chalk or the dirt.

Object of the game:
Trade places in the square without being tagged by “it”.

Set up the game:
Draw a large square ( at least 15’ on each side).



How to Play:
Four players stand on each of the corners of the square. 
The 5th player ("it" for the first round) stands in the middle of the large square. 

The players in the 4 squares try and trade places with each other without being tagged by “it”. 
And also without letting a corner become vacant long enough for "it" to stand in the corner and claim it. 

If a player is tagged or left without a corner to stand in then they become “it”.

Strategy: Try and swap corners while “it” is busy chasing the other players.
