Happy Wednesday everyone…the weekend is getting closer! Have any big plans? We will be heading to the beach to do a little end of the summer camp out! So guess what I will be working on today and tomorrow? Yup.. packing :).
So last week I shared a little bit about my daughter’s 9th birthday party. You can check it out here. I also showed you my little polka dot banner I made…with my daughter’s hello kitty sewing machine…if you haven’t read that yet take a peak here. I also mentioned a little game I made, Bean Bag Toss…and I thought I’d show you a little bit more on our little project today….
It started out with an idea. Then my husband found an old scrap piece of plywood we just happened to have lying around, and I got to work.
I traced circles onto the board where I wanted the holes to be, and then using our skill saw we cut the holes out. I then put my birthday girl to work painting. I think she did a pretty darn good job, don’t you?
After she finished painting both sides, the next day I painted the last minute touches…. and viola! Bean bag toss board that we can keep and use over and over. I was going to make a stand for it, but found that it worked just fine propped up. I was also going to make bean bags, but I ran out of time…so I used my daughters ingenious idea and stole some beanie babies out of their room for the afternoon. 🙂
And there you have it! Not the greatest picture of it, but you get the idea! The best part is that Anika helped make it, and we will get alot of use out of it when friends come over!
I am also loving me some Instagram lately, and here’s a couple pics I’ve posted.
