- Play a game of Horseshoes! … I taught my 6-year-old how to play horseshoes this afternoon and he loved it. I have to admit my 3-year-old didn’t care much for the rules, he just liked throwing the horseshoes and running to grab them. Our rules are simple but I don’t know if they’re even close to the real rules
- If you ring the horseshoe around the stake (left picture), you get 2 points.
- If it lands within a horseshoe-width of the stake (right picture) you get 1 point.
- First person to 11 points wins! Adding up the points was actually great math practice too.
NOTE: I found this horseshoe set in the Dollar Spot at Target ($2.50). The stakes that came with it fell apart after the first use, so we pounded in some metal stakes. Much better.
