As a kid I always loved the bean bag toss game at carnivals and parties. Heck, even now we still play a grown-up version of this classic game when we break out the corn hole boards at tailgate parties. It's just one of those games that never goes out of style. As I was prepping for our Halloween Monster Bash I wanted to make sure that I included fun, easy and inexpensive games that will keep the kids entertained. I decided to repourpose the owl themed bean bag toss I created for this Whoo's Thankful party a few years back. It's just been sitting in my garage collecting dust, but with the help of Americana Multi-Surface paint I gave it a monster sized transformation.
Use a small paper plate as a template for the monster's eye, paint it white. Add extra details, like polka dots and a tongue, to make your monster silly and fun. I used purple glitter scrapbook paper and added horns to my monster as well.
Flip the board over and attach the 2x4 legs with the hinge brackets. This is perfect for helping keep the board standing while the kids are playing, but also makes it easy to store the board if you want to keep up for another occasion or party.
Let the kids take turns tossing mini pumpkins or bean bags into the monster's mouth. You know those silly monsters get hungry, so the kids should have lots of fun trying to feed him.
There you have it, a quick, easy and inexpensive way to keep the kids entertained at your Halloween party.
