Beanbag Throw

Materials

  • Tape or string
  • Beanbags (at least one per player)
  • Laundry basket or cardboard box (optional)

Directions

  1. Mark two lines six feet apart on the floor with tape or string.
  2. Have the players take turns standing at one line and throwing a beanbag toward the other line.
  3. The winner is the player whose beanbag comes closest to the line without crossing it.
  4. If you like, have the players aim for a laundry basket or cardboard box instead.
  5. Have the players take turns throwing all the beanbags one at a time toward the basket or box.
  6. The winner is the player who gets the most beanbags into the basket or box.
  7. If there's a tie, have a play-off round to determine the winner.
