Cow boys and Indians, the tickling version?

Ok, so my son Jeremy is 8 years old, very active, runaroundy type kid, and he loves to be tickled! (can't get enough of it!) He always provokes us and runs away! He tires to get us to chase and catch him, (and we can't always keep up since he's way faster!) So we were thinking of trying to find a way to make a game that invovled tickling so he could get his share and spare us some of the running around!

Is there any way to have a tag game, or cowboys and indians---something with the seek and capture element that is still organized and has rules to help us? :)

His tickle spot: soles of his feet.

  • Cops and robbers. If he is the robber and gets caught, his punishment is feet tickling LOL.

  • Go with cops and robbers around here we live next to a reservation and the whole getting the indian thing isn't a good idea these days but getting the bad guys sure is or maybe put him in "jail"( his bed maybe) and you have to find him when he breaks out and when you catch him throw him over your shoulder and "toss" him back in "jail giving him 10 minutes of tickle torture as punishment

  • ooo, that's shaping up to be a good idea!
    one of my friends had the idea that if he was a robber and we caught him we could "tickle interrogate" him until he gave up where he hid the cash or osmething! they even suggested we maybe use our soft reclining chair as the "interrogation room" since it can put his feet right up in tickle view :) of course, we'd have to figure out how to keep him still for the "interrogation" :)

  • This is the weirdest thing I ever heard. Just give him a quick tickle when you walk by him every so often. You don't need to construct an elaborate game around it.
