Kick the Can

One child counting, the rest running away

Number of Players 3+

How it’s played:

1 Players pick the first person to be on
2 Players hide while whoever is on counts at the can – this can be a pole, a tree, a bucket (if playing indoors it could be a chair or beanbag)
3 The person who is on has to find and tag each of the players hiding
4 Anyone caught has to stand by at the can and wait to be freed by the players who have not been caught
5 To free someone, a player has to kick (or tap) the can without getting caught themselves

REMEMBER to play somewhere safe.
