Set up a flat playing area with boundaries big enough for the entire group to run in without causing injury.

Choose three players to be otters. The rest of the players are clams. Tell the otters to count to 20 and then they start to chase after the clams.

When one of the otters tags a clam the clam becomes frozen and shouts "Help the clam!" They remain frozen until 2 people stand around the clam joining hands and say "Free the clams!" This unfreezes the person and they are back in the game.

Note: The otters cannot tag players who are unfreezing another player. That being said, players cannot stand with their arms linked around another player waiting because they do not want to be tagged. Game play must continue quickly.

Play until everyone is tagged and frozen or if it looks like everyone needs a break!
