A little late, but you know what they say: Better late than never.
I borrowed my grandparent's antique croquet set for a little number sequence practice. I really anticipated some of the kids having trouble getting the ball to go through the right number in the right order. I did not anticipate the actual hitting of the ball with the mallet to be problematic. Boy was I wrong! They all had fun, though, and a few got the hang of it enough to finish the course and start going back through backwards. The kids love to be outside! Even if they didn't get a chance to put a ball through each arch, I think they still got a good number review by watching each other try to figure out where the next one was.
