Cooties is close to a mix between 4 square and dodge ball. It is made to be played in a gym or a large space where you can have 4 same sized areas that form a large square or rectangle. If you are not found of the game's name fell free to change it!

What you need:
4 teams – One for each section
1 paper plate (cootie) per person
A defined out of bounds line
And a stop watch or timer to have random stops in game play

Divide the group into 4 teams, you can have mix teams or teams of girls and boys. Label cups or hats team 1, 2, 3 and 4 and have each member of each team put their name on a piece of paper fold it up and place it in their team cup or hat.  

Then give each player 1 paper plate / aka a “cootie” (red is good as it is Valentine’s themed) and have them go to their team square / area.

When the game starts players are to toss the Cooties (red plates) into another team’s square area without have their plate go out of bounds.

If a plate lands outside the playing area it is lost for that game.

Players continue to scramble and toss the Cooties into other squares until the whistle or timer goes off. When the timer goes off the Team in the Square with the most Cooties (plates) loses a player.

After it is determined which team loses a player, reach into that teams cup / hat and randomly select a piece of paper with a player’s name on it. That player is then out of the game.

Once the player is eliminated then the game resumes until the whistle / timer goes off again and another player is eliminated.

When a square gets down to one player on the team, if that square ends up with the most Cooties then the player and all the Cooties are removed from the game. That now becomes an out of bounds area and any plates that land in that area are out of play.

The last square to have players in the game wins.
Thanks Heather
