Make Your Own Bean Bags
Step 2: What you need-
- dry beans or rice (one type or a variety)
- a tape measure or ruler
- zip top bags (I used quart size)
- and duct tape (optional)
**Note: It has been 5 years since I made these bean bags, and they are still intact!
Super simple. All you need is a cardboard box and a marker. I added a math element by labeling each flap with ‘5’ and writing ’10’ in the bottom of the box.
Each time the bean bag landed on a flap, the child tossing earned 5 points. If the bag landed in the box, 10 points were earned.
We wrote each person’s score on our chalk board and added up the totals as we went. (Great practice in counting by 5s and 10s!)
Enjoy your time at home!
