Kick It Through the Wicket

Kids can practice their soccer skills with this supersize version of croquet.

What you'll need

  • Pliers
  • 9 wire clothes hangers
  • Colored tape
  • Scissors
  • Card stock
  • Marker
  • 1 playground or soccer ball per player

How to play

  1. Setting up: Use pliers to untwist the hangers, then bend each into a square wicket big enough for the balls to fit through. Cover the wire with colored tape. Cut circles from card stock, use a marker to number them 1 through 9, then tape them to the wickets. Set up the wickets in the formation of your choice, spacing them at least 6 feet apart.

  2. Playing the game: Each player gets 1 kick per turn, trying to send his ball through the wickets in order. When he gets it through a wicket or if he hits another ball, he gets a bonus kick. The first player to get his ball through all 9 wickets wins.
