We played “kick the can” in Holland all the time. We call it “blikkietrap”. Basicly one kicks the can and names someone who must fetch it. The others hide. The person who has to get the can (or soccer ball in our case) places it in a central point and goes to look for the missing kids. But the kids can make their way back to the can without being found by the one who looks. That’s the game. The kids have to make their way back to the can (or ball) before they are found by the one who looks for them. If you are found you’re the person who must get the can in the next game.
