KICK THE CAN

PLAYED LIKE HIDE AND GO SEEK. THE BASE IS AN EMPTY
CAN. WHEN THE PERSON WHO IS IT SEES SOMEONE, HE
RUNS TO THE CAN AND SAYS "1-2-3 ON JOHNNY." ALL
THOSE CAUGHT MUST STAY BY THE CAN. IF SOMEONE WHO
IS NOT CAUGHT RUNS OUT FROM HIDING AND KICKS THE CAN
EVERYONE IS FREE AGAIN. GAME GOES UNTIL ALL ARE
CAUGHT, OR IT GIVES UP. WHEN IT WANTS TO GIVE UP,
HE SHOUTS "OLLE OLLE OXEN--ALL IN FREE."
