My nephews and I invented a brand new Winter game that is both fun and WAY safer than lawn darts. It's called 'Horseshoe Picking' and here's how to play.

What You Need To Play:

One Set of Plastic Horseshoes

One Small Tree: (Preferably 8-12 feet tall)

One Small Hockey Stick

How to Play:

The kids throw the horseshoes up into the tree until they get stuck. If the adult cannot reach the stuck horseshoe to free it (and is forced to use the hockey stick), that is one point for the kids.

Since this game is new, we haven't yet decided how to score a point if you are the adult.

Time in Which the Kids Get Bored With The Game:

About 20 Minutes (which is pretty good!)
