Determine the tag area and make the area fairly small. One person is the snake, who lies on the ground on his stomach. Everyone else gathers fearlessly around to touch him. When the leader shouts "snake-in-the- grass" everyone runs, staying within the bounds of the snake area, while the snake, moving on his belly, tries to tag as many as he can. Those touched become snakes. The last person caught is the snake starter in the next game.
