How to play kick the can game
Commence by picking a player to become “IT” and a venue for the children to gather or assemble. On a start, this selected player kicks the container as far as he or she can and then the games commences immediately after this action is taken by the chosen player.
The players scatter within the game venue to find hiding places as the can continue rolling. “IT” then pursues the container until when possessed and brought back to the home base where the game started.
As soon as the container is captured and brought back home by the selected player, he/she counts to 50 or above with his eyes closed while other players still dwell in their hiding places.
After counting, he opens his eyes and starts searching for the other players in their hiding stations as the fun kicks off and soars.
When this appointed player “IT” locates a hider, he/she shouts out this player’s name in an audible rate. This exposed player comes out to struggles with the appointed player for the container and if the hider is able to kick over the can before “IT” does, he is safe. But if the appointed player makes the kick first, the exposed player whose name was called out will be apprehended and must wait next to the can or container.
Players or the player in jail is not out of the game. Yet another player can also volunteer to save the ones in jail if he succeeds kicking the can and calling out “Home Free” without being captured by the IT player, those in jail are free to run and hide from the selected player again.
The game triggers on until all the prisoners have been captured. The first captured player is re-selected for the IT in the next round. This game continues in a rotatory manner till all are exhausted.
