Stars and Stripes Bean Bag Toss

Get ready for your 4th of July celebration with this easy bean bag toss and NO-SEW bean bags! This is a great game for kids and adults and is great for your backyard BBQ celebration. 
I picked up fabric quarters from JoAnn’s. One had a stars pattern and the other had stripes. All you need to do is cut two pieces of the same fabric into bean bag size squares (about 4×4). Glue the edges together with fabric glue but be sure to leave a little hole to fill with beans.
When glue has dried, fill the bean bag with beans and seal the hole with more fabric glue. Glue should take about 24 hours to dry but I was impatient and only waited about an hour. It was dry enough to play with at this point :o)
You will want to make at least 3 bean bags for each team.
Now make your game board. I used the side of a large cardboard box. You will want to cut the sides at angles and leave a flap at the top. When laid flat, the board should look like this.
I used a small bowl to trace circles. Cut them out and paint around the rim with red, white and blue, acrylic paint.
Now it’s time to play! Red is 1 point, White is 2 points and Blue is 3 points. 
Have a fun and safe 4th of July!
