BEAN BAG TOSS -- the Super Why way!

For my boys' Super Hero birthday, we had an obstacle course, and one of the elements was a bean bag toss I made out of an old box.  It was one of the highlights for my boys.  They played with it for weeks before the party.  Here's how I did it:

You'll need:
  • a box with a lid (reinforced with packing tape)
  • paint and paintbrush
  • something sharp to cut holes with
  • a picture of a super hero (I printed mine off the internet)
  • Modge Podge

Step 1:  Paint the box, and use Modge Podge to attach a picture of a Super Hero to the middle of the lid.

Step 2:  Draw four circles on the lid, and cut out with something sharp.  (I used an X-Acto knife.)

Step 3:  Prop up the lid of the box on the bottom of the box to create an angle.  (See picture below.)

That's it -- cheap, easy, and lots of fun

You can buy small balls or bean bags, but if you want to make matching bean bags like I did, here is what you do:
  1. Cut two circles out of felt.
  2. Embelish the top circle.
  3. Add rice to the bottom circle.
  4. Secure with a circle of hot glue and some stitching (to ensure that the rice doesn't fall out)

Happy Tossing!
