Stick Game

Preparation: Cut three dowels into 2′ (.6 m) lengths. Undo two metal coat hangers. Shape one end of each hanger into a circle, straighten the other end. Stick the hoops into the ground 4′ (1.2 m) apart (see illustration).

Stick Game

To Play: Each player stands behind a wire hoop. He has three tries to toss a stick into the opposite hoop. A stick that goes into the hoop and stands up counts 5 points. A stick that goes completely through the hoop counts 3 points. If the stick only hits the wire, it counts 1 point. The first player to score 21 points wins the game.
