    Just because the sun goes down, doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. Grab the Coleman 300-Lumen BatteryLockTM Flashlight for a game of flashlight tag! The rules: 1) Set your playing boundaries; 2) Select one person to be “it”; 3) The person who is “it”, holds a flashlight and tries trying to find the others in play, like Hide-and-Seek; 4) Being tagged means getting lit up by the flashlight; 5) Once tagged by the light that person becomes “it”; 6) Have fun and don’t get caught! The Coleman 300-Lumen BatteryLockTM Flashlight is available at colemancanada.ca and comes in a variety of sizes.
