- Start by choosing one person to be IT and a "home base"
- To start, this player (IT) gets to kick the can as far as he/she can
- The other players scatter to find hiding places as the can rolls
- IT then chases after the can and brings it back to home base
- When IT opens them, IT starts searching for the other kids
- When IT finds a hider, IT calls out this player's name
- If the hider can kick over the can before IT does, they are safe
- If IT makes it to the can first, the player whose name IT calls out is captured and must wait in the jail (next to the can)
- The player/s in jail are not doomed just yet, another player can risk capture to save them!
Be sure to find a suitable and safe place to play like your street, garden or local park
