Kids hide like box turtles from a predator.
Don't let the predator see see you crawling around or you are out/eaten.
Box Turtles withdraw into their shells when they sense danger.
This Is How You Play
- One person is chosen as the predator.
- Everyone else is a turtle and crawls around on all fours.
- Similar to Statues in the Park, the predator faces away from the turtles, and when he/she turns around, all the turtles must curl into a ball and hide their heads.
- If the predator catches a turtle still moving when he/she turns around, that person could be out or roll onto their back and play dead.
