Hey! Kick The Can goes back to southwest Minnesota during the depression. One person was “it” and was blindfolded (or just didn’t look) while everybody hid all over the neighborhood. As the “it” person located the hidden people, they would all go to jail, which was somewhere near the can. If everyone was found and in jail, a new “it” person was elected. HOWEVER, if a kid avoided being seen and raced to the can…and kicked it…everybody in jail was set free and the process started all over again. A stupid game that was a lot of fun…always played at dusk in an area with lots of good hiding places.
