Transcript

  • 1. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com Icebreakers Candy Cane Horseshoes Play a game of horseshoes using candy canes. www.CreativeChristmasIdeas.com
  • 2. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com Materials Candy canes and a stick. Be sure the candy canes are wrapped in plastic as they are almost guaranteed to break into a number of small pieces during game play. For indoor games you can either drive a nail into a flat piece of wood or turn a table or stool over and use one of the legs as the post. www.CreativeChristmasIdeas.com
  • 3. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com Activity • In the manner of playing horseshoes, the objective is to take turns to toss the candy cane at an upright stick. • Place a stick vertically somewhere in the ground. • Then participants take turns throwing candy canes (underhand) at it. www.CreativeChristmasIdeas.com
  • 4. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com • A game is divided into rounds and each round constitutes the pitching of two candy canes by each contestant. • In each round, the one with the highest score goes first . • The objective of the game is to get your candy cane closest. www.CreativeChristmasIdeas.com
  • 5. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com Scoring • A candy cane must be within six (6) inches of the stake to score. • A candy cane that first strikes the ground outside the target area or rebounds from behind the stake cannot be scored, nor can any candy cane thrown from an invalid position. • A “ringer” (3 points) is a candy cane that encircles the stake so that a straight edge could touch the two prongs without touching the stake. www.CreativeChristmasIdeas.com
  • 6. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com • The closest cane from each pair scores 1 point. A leaning shoe has no value over one touching the stake. • The points are scored according to the position of the shoes at the round’s end, that is, after the contestants have each thrown two candy canes. • This means it is possible for the second player to knock the opponents candy canes either away or closer to the stake. www.CreativeChristmasIdeas.com
  • 7. www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com Read about the significance of the Candy Cane to the Birth of Christ in the “Legend of the Candy Cane” www.CreativeChristmasIdeas.com
