Pryamid Bean Bags

 I have been doing some research online for bean bags. I really want to make some games for my kids with them. I couldn't believe how many different ones I found. Some had streamers. Others had fun colors in all sizes. I found some that were filled with rice, beans, poly pellets and even pony beads.

The cutest ones where shaped as chickens.
-Have you seen these?

I also found so many different ways to play with bean bags. I didn't know about the game known as cornhole. This is a very common tailgaters game. Definitely one to try :)

Another game I learned about is called five stones or knucklebones. This game is very similar to the one I knew as a child called Jacks. With Jacks you bounce a ball while trying to pick up the 3D shaped stars. I loved it!

I was inspired to make my own. And here's what I came up with:


I opted for a smaller size. I cut my starting fabric to 3.5" X 6.5". I love the way the numbers ended up looking so bright and bold. So far we have juggled with them, thrown them into a bucket as a basket, tossed them across the room. Next I want to try the smaller size to make my own Knucklebones/Five Stones.
