Activity Overview

Gather some handy items that you have at home to create a beanbag tossing game. Create your own colorful bean bags and use a step ladder from the garage to create a cool backyard game that all of your family will enjoy. This game is great for all ages and even sneaks some Math practice in without the kids noticing.

Materials Needed

  • A Step Ladder
  • Cardboard or card stock
  • Duck Tape
  • Markers
  • Beanbags ( If you don't have bean bags you can fill sandwich baggies with colored rice like we did.)

How to Make and Play

  1. To make easy beanbags, add rice to several plastic Ziploc baggies, put a few drops of food coloring in the baggies and seal and shake the bags until the rice is uniformly colored. Then seal the ziplock side with duck tape.
  2. Once your bean bags are made, have an adult set up a step ladder from the garage out in the backyard.
  3. Cut your 8.5 x11 sheets of card stock and cut them in half.
  4. Write numbers in ascending order with one number on each card. For example: 10, 20, 30 , 40, 50, 60 etc.
  5. Tape numbers in ascending order from the bottom rung to the top rung. You don't have to fill the whole ladder. Use your judgment.
  6. Create a starting line for tossing. You may want to make two if the whole family is playing. Little ones might need to be a little bit closer to the ladder than adults.
  7. Toss your colored bean bags through the ladder rungs, aiming for the highest amount of points that you can. Take turns and keep a tally of point values.
  8. The player with the highest point value wins.
  9. Continue the game in rounds and keep the kids adding higher and higher or reverse the rules to have the lowest tally of points be the winner.
