    Bean Bag Toss!

    These little bean bags are simple to make just cut out some squares and sew right-sides together, leave about an inch or more open slot to turn right-side out and fill with beans, rice, or craft fill beads. Then hand sew opening closed. For the board I just traced and cut circles out on one side of a large cardboard box. Paint if desired.I was in charge of sharing time last Sunday for the Primary so I put this together for the activity. The kids loved it! To view more please visit my blog!

I had a pattern for pants that I just cropped into shorts(a nice length) and vwala…. I would like to sell something like this on etsy, I think it might do well, and it was very fun to make!…
