Tip The Can
What you need:
- Just people!
This is an outdoor game for a group of people. It can be played inside if the area is large and safe enough to run around in.
How to play:
- A can or other object is placed in the middle of the play area and another area is designated as ‘jail’ e.g. around a tree, on the front steps, in a corner.
- One person is ‘it’ and has to tag people as they run about. If someone is tagged they go to ‘jail’.
- People can only get out of jail if someone not in jail ‘tips the can’ i.e. touches the can/object. If someone tips the can everyone in jail goes free! (Some people play it that each tip only frees one prisoner – the first person in jail.)
