  • All the other children will be at the other end.

  • The 'It' will count from 1 to 10 and shout  "Marco".

  • The others will shout "Polo" and the 'It'' has to go and capture the other children listening to the sounds till they tag the next person as 'It'.

  • Every time the 'It' shouts "Marco", others have to shout "Polo" in response.
