I started with some scraps of patriotic fabric from the quilt I posted earlier this week. I pieced together 4x4" squares.
Place right sides of fabric together. Leaving a small opening to turn them inside out, sew with 1/4" seam allowance. Turn inside out and fill with rice or beans. Then stitch the small remaining opening together.
Next I cut a star out of plywood with a jigsaw. I did it without a pattern so it is definitely not perfect. A square or a rectangle shape would work just as easily. I elected to only cut one hole out of the middle to make it fun and easy for children of any age.
Then I taped it off to paint it red, white, and blue. I cut a small piece of wood and screwed it in the back to make it stand up.
I bought an adorable patriotic bucket to keep the beanbags in and our game was ready to go. My son is already enjoying it!
Please check back tomorrow for another fun children's game I am working on. It requires minimal supplies and will be so fast to make!
