I am SOOOOOO excited about my daughter's Easter gift! I decided she'll get enough chocolate over the weekend and so I made her a bean bag toss game! (well... my dad made the board and then I painted it and made the bean bags!) Do you think she'll like it? I sure hope she does! I plan on bringing it out at her birthday party this summer as well - minus the bunny Easter bags... I'll make some more birthday themed ones at the time.
The best part it was pretty much free to make! scrap wood - free, scrap fabric - basically free, basket $1.00, and some spare paint kicking about the house from room painting!
Here are some pics of the construction. If you want to make your own, cut 2 right angle triangles 7.5" x 18" and then your top board is 21.5" (tall) x 19.5" (width). the under side has a board across the back on the under in case any little kids wish to climb the game, safety first.
The blue is the main colour in my daughters room and the pink is the accent colour on the top of her trim.
For bean bags I made bunnies, bees, and a flower. I traced around a large (ish) circle... those little ceramic baking dishes I can't remember the name of is what I used.
No chocolate from this mom for Easter but hopefully lots of fun for my little girl and her cousins!
