Mermaids` Makings

Bean Bags Toss Game

Today we played a Bean Bags Toss Game.. well it`s actually a Rice Tights Toss Game :D

I have been thinking of making bean bags for a while but sewing is not my strongest point.. but today, sorting out my daughter’s tights she had grown out of, I came up with this- cut about 20cm strips from the tights, make a knot, add some beans, rice, lentils or whatever you prefer, make another knot.. and that`s it.

For the tossing game we used the rings from a game we had made earlier this year – throwing the bags in from a distance into whichever ring you prefer.

Have fun!
