“It Mitts”, Spice up your Tag Games in PE class!

I’ve been using these car wash gloves from the dollar store in my physical education classes for some time now. You’re probably wondering why…

It mitts -HPE, car wash gloves, gym class, tag gamesI call them “it mitts”! The children who are chosen to be “it” for tag games wear them. There are a few reasons these are awesome to use in gym classes, day camps or anytime you’d play tag with children:

  • The person who is “it” is easily identified with this bright glove;
  • No more children asking, “who’s it?!”;
  • Wearing them reminds the children to be gentle when they tag someone;
  • You can use with any age level. At first I got them for my kindergarten classes, but quickly realized the classes all the way up to grade 6 loved them too;
  • The student’s absolutely love using them!

The student’s faces light up when they see these bright mitts coming out of my gym office! I picked these up at my local dollar store a few years ago. I haven’t seen the exact same ones recently but there are different models of virtually the same idea at Dollarama right now. You could also use those foam hands/fingers from sporting events if you have any around the house.

“You’re it!” Have fun!
