Common steps and sub-activities

Mallets

An apparently vicious instrument until you realise it is meant to be used very gently and tapped lightly on the surface of the skin.  Its advantage is that it has a broad spread and the stimulation can thus be distributed a bit and thus be more gentle.  They were not intended to be hard.

  

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – Lewis Carroll

'Get to your places!' shouted the Queen in a voice of thunder, and people began running about in all directions, tumbling up against each other; however, they got settled down in a minute or two, and the game began.

Alice thought she had never seen such a curious croquet-ground in her life; it was all ridges and furrows; the balls were live hedgehogs, the mallets live flamingoes, and the soldiers had to double themselves up and to stand on their hands and feet, to make the arches.
