Noodle Tag - shallow or deep game

This is an Aquatic pattern from (pattern 15743)

This is a fun game I have used in the shallow pool water fitness classes over the past few years but could also be used in deep water.

Participants form a large circle and the instructor (if in water doing class) or one of the participants has a water log/noodle.

The person with the noodle calls out a move for the class to perform and then hands the noodle to the person nearest to them and begins running (in shallow end) or swimming (in deep end) around the outside of the circle while the circle does the move as they pass the log/noodle in the opposite direction of the "IT" runner/swimmer. The person who last touched the noodle/log when the runner/swimmer gets to them is the next "IT" and will call out the next move and take off in one direction as the circle performs the move and passes the noodle/log in the opposite direction.

So, this is a combination of tag and hot potato and makes a fun game. I normally use this for a cool-down but it could be used for aerobic portion of class.
