Kick the Can

Start with a tin can is set up in a circle near a designated “jail”. Choose one or a few people to be “it” depending on how many you have playing. Everyone else is spread out around the play area. The object is for someone to get in the area and kick down the can. If they do the team wins and new players can be chosen to be “it”. If you are tagged you go to jail and are there until a new game starts or the leader calls jail break. You can add several variations/rules to this game to make it more fun and engaging, similar to capture the flag.
