Recipe for Fun!

Split the players into 2 teams. Give every member of each team a number so there is a 1 on both teams, a 2 on both teams, etc. Have the teams line up on opposite edges of the play area, with the "bacon" (the T-shirt, book or glove) in the center. Have an adult (or a child not playing) call out any of the player numbers. Those 2 players from opposing teams try to get to the “bacon” first, grab it, and bring it back to their teammates without being tagged by the other player. A player may not be tagged before they’ve touched the "bacon." If a player is able to grab the bacon and carry it back over to his/her own side, that team scores a point. If a player is tagged after touching the bacon, but before he/she returns their own side, the team that tagged him/her scores a point.
