Kick the Can (child's play theme)

Post by Squishbot » Sun May 11, 2014 8:04 pm

Laura arrived at the park to meet the other kids for their weekly game of Kick the Can. “Where’s Adam?” she asked.
“He’s not here because he lost last week” answered another girl. Tom came up and plunked the big coffee can in the middle of a chalk circle, something rattling inside as the can settled. Minutes later, Laura, from her new hiding spot, sprinted toward the can and almost touched it before John did.
Tom opened the can and handed a knife to each child as they formed a circle around Laura and began to chant quietly: “you’re it”.
