Games for kids: Bean toss

by Rebecca Sometimes the games we play seem so simple it's silly - but these are the things that my kids love (which makes me happy too!)

This game was made with coffee stir sticks, recycled paper and an empty box. I just set up targets and taped them to the coffee stir sticks, then to the inside of the box.

Using our bean bags (I bought them from My Stow-n-Tow for Christmas!) we would stand behind the 'line' and aim, trying to hit the targets. It was a lot of fun, although, probably even funnier since I seemed to have terrible aim!

To make it more challenging, we would take a step back the better we got.

Don't have bean bags? Use a mini stuffed animal or rolled up socks!

Have fun, get creative and PLAY!
