With an adult, choose a large outdoor paved area that is clean, safe, and free from traffic.
With the Sidewalk Paint Sprayer, draw two "horseshoe pits", one a good throwing distance from the other.
Use a different color to paint the "post" in the center of each pit. Draw a scorecard to keep track of the game.
Make your own Model Magic horseshoes or quoits. Roll thick snakes and shape each one into a U. To give your horseshoe a little more weight, mix in aquarium gravel. Air-dry for 24 hours.
Cover the horseshoe with a coat of glue. Air-dry the glue. Add another coat of glue. Make sure your horseshoes are completely dry before you use them to play.
Decide how many rounds to play. Players stand at one end of the play area. Take turns tossing horseshoes at the post in the pit farthest away.
Award two points for "ringers" (a horseshoe that has both ends around the post) and one point for "leaners" (a horseshoe that touches the post).
Players add up scores, then turn and throw in the other direction. Winner is player with most points.
