HIDE AND SEEK

TAKE AN EMPTY TIN CAN AND PUT IT ON THE FLOOR. SOMEONE
WHO WILL BE CHOSEN AS THE GHOST AND SOMEONE ELSE
WILL KICK THE CAN SO THAT IT MAY TAKE THE GHOST
SOME TIME TO PICK IT UP. THE OTHER CHILDREN WILL RUN
AND HIDE SO THAT THE GHOST CANNOT SEE THEM. IF THE
GHOST SPOTS A PERSON, HE CAN RUN BACK TO THE STARTING
PLACE. IF THIS PERSON GETS BACK BEFORE THE GHOST, HE
WILL NOT LOSE OR BE THE NEXT GHOST.
