Fruit croquet

Family game of croquet with fruit!

While this doesn't quite count as one of your five-a-day, this is a great family game which involves playing croquet with fruit.

  1. Mark out a start line, and then mark out a finish line about 25m away.
  2. Divide your group into two teams, and get them to stand in two lines behind the start line.
  3. Take one orange or apple and place it in one leg of the tights.
  4. Tie the other leg of the tights around each of the first players’ waists, so that the fruit is hanging in front of each player between their legs.
  5. Now place another piece of fruit on the floor between each of the players’ feet.
  6. Start the game by shouting ‘Go!‘.
  7. The players must use the fruit in the stocking to knock the fruit on the floor from the start line to the finish line.
  8. Once a player has knocked their fruit across the finish line, they should pick up the fruit and sprint back to their team at the start line.
  9. Players should quickly pass their tights to the next team member before they can set off!
  10. The winning side is the first to get all their team members back behind the start line.
