With an adult, choose a large outdoor paved area that is clean, safe, and free from traffic. Use your Sidewalk Paint Sprayer to define the playing area.
Draw a "jail" large enough to hold several players and a safety area for players to rest.
If you choose to decorate the plastic container, use Crayola Gel Markers, which write on almost any surface.
Put a few rocks in the container (called a can). Screw on the lid. Place the can in the center of the playing area.
One player is chosen as "seeker." The others scatter across the playing field. The seeker stands about 10 paces away from the can.
Other players try to sneak up and kick the can before the seeker calls out their names. Several players can try to do this at once.
If the seeker spots a player moving toward the can, the seeker calls out the name and counts out loud to three. Players caught by the seeker go to jail.
If a player kicks the can before the seeker can say that person’s name and count to three, all players in jail are free. The game starts over with a different seeker.
