How to Make a Bean Bag Toss Game

By June 26, 2013

Follow me on:

Have you ever heard of Cornhole? It is actually a really fun outdoor game played somewhat like horseshoes, except you throw bean bags at a 2' x 4' board, laid at an incline, with a hole cut in it. It is a great activity the entire can do outside on a lovely summer day.

It seems this fun bean bag toss game has been getting increasingly popular. The nice thing is that, while you can shell out quite a bit of money to buy this game, you can easily make your own Cornhole game. You can build your own Cornhole game boards and then sew up some bean or corn bags. You will need two game boards and two sets of 4 bean bags. You can find all of the rules for playing Cornhole on this Site.

Duck cloth is supposed to be the best material for the bags. When the corn starts to break down it creates a dust that helps the bag slide better.
