How to Play: Striking the Stick
How to play: Draw a 5- to 6- foot square on the ground. Place the block in the very center of the square. Players take turns attempting to knock the block out of the square by throwing a 15-inch stick at it.
The rules: If a player knocks the block out of the square, he or she gets three attempts to knock the block like a golf ball an agreed-upon distance (20 to 100 feet).
How to win: If a player succeeds hitting the block the agreed-upon distance, that player wins the game. If he or she does not succeed, the block goes back into the square and play continues.
