Bean Bag Game

By Needlework and General Crafts Contributor Emily from the blog Larkspur Cottage.

This lawn game is quick to put together, but great fun for all ages. Little bean bags can be used for a variety of games or open-ended play. Here just is one idea for how to use them!

Here’s What You Need:

Cut two matching squares out of your fabric. My squares are about 4×4 inches, but they could be larger or smaller.

    

Lay the squares right side together, and sew around the edge, leaving a gap to turn the bean bag right side out. Cut the corner points off and turn it right side out.

Fill your beanbag with rice. My beanbags aren’t completely full to give them some softness.

Hand sew the hole closed securely.

Repeat to make a few beanbags!

    

Here is a bean bag game idea: gather different sized bowls, and give each bowl a sign for a different number of points. Lay the bowls out on the lawn, with more points the farther away/smaller the bowl is.

Easy to set up and lots of fun for your next picnic!
