Kick the Can Game
How to Play:
“It” counts to 50 while the other kids hide.
“It” then goes and tries to find the hidden players.
When “it” sees a player they call the players name and location.
Then both “it” and the player who has been caught race to the can and try to be the first one to kick it.
If “it” kicks the can first then the player goes to the “jail”.
If the player kicks the can first the they and all the prisoners in the jail are free and “it” must count again.
If “it” catches all the players then a new game starts with a new “it”.
Variations of Kick the Can:
Any player who has not been caught can kick the can (without being caught) and set all the prisoners free.
After tagging or calling out a players name they have found, “it” must run back to the can, put their foot on top of it and call out “ 1, 2, 3 on ______” (fill in the blank with the players name) before the player who has been found can kick the can from under his foot.
This gives the player who is caught 3 additional seconds to get out of their hiding place.How to Play:
