DIY Bean Bag Toss


For my son's second birthday this last fall we had a Farm/Barnyard birthday party for him. 
My amazing father contributed a ton of his time to help create some amazing pieces for his party and one being this bean bag toss game that we had. He is a carpenter by trade so this was a fun project for him. 


I came up with the idea after my son's first birthday when my mom suggested that my father should have made a bean bag toss board out of cookie monster for his party. I always kept the idea in the back of my mind and the moment I knew he was going to have a Farm Party I told my Dad that I wanted a barn made. My father had a scrap piece of wood that he sanded down,  he cut the shape and some trim pieces and I painted it red and white.

Now mind you not everyone is a carpenter and can make something so easily but this game can also be made with a large piece of cardboard, a thin piece of plastic or another similar material.


The best part about this game is how easy the bean bags were to make. 

I simply took burlap and cut two squares per bag into 5"x5" squares. 
Sew the two pieces together around the edges leaving a small hole on the top open to fill with beans.


I bought a cheap bag on pinto beans from Target.


Fill the bean bags about 3/4 of the way full then sew the top hole closed.
Because they were not completely full it was easy to use my sewing machine to close them up and not have to hand stitch them. 


Once you have all the sides sewn pull the access burlap strings off the sides and you are done!


This game was a fun addition to his party and it is a great game to have now to keep forever! 


Thanks for visiting,
