We LOVE to be outside as much as possible! Even in the hot hot summer, I have time scheduled every day to just play outside! And it is one of my kid’s favorite parts of the day. We love to ride bikes and play in the sprinklers, we love to take walks and go to the park, we love to roller blade and we love to head to the pool. We also LOVE to play games! So I am really excited to share a really fun and simple outdoor (or indoor) game, perfect for kids (and adults) of all ages! Here is my simple and fun version of DIY corn hole!
- Tabletop of Kids Cornhole Board
- Dena Designs 12 x 12 Scrapbook Paper Pack
- Mod Podge, Matte
- Foam Brush
- Cutting Mat with Knife, 8.5″ x 11.75″
- Fabric Palette Charm Square Pack, Splash Collection
- Stitch Witchery, or a sewing machine and thread
- Bean Bag Filling
I used my foam brush to apply Mod Podge to the wood and then I carefully placed the scrapbook paper onto the board. Once it was dry, I used my knife and cutting mat to trim off the excess paper.
If you really want to secure the paper to the board a bit better, you can apply a layer of Mod Podge on top of the scrapbook paper as well. Let that dry completely.
While the Mod Podge is drying you can work on assembling your bean bags! I don’t love sewing, so I used stitch witchery that I had on hand to iron the fabric squares together. I placed the squares inside out and ironed three sides together. Then I turned the bean bag right-side out, filled it with bean bag filler, flipped the last edge in and ironed the final edge together.
I had so much fun assembling this fun DIY corn hole game for my family! It didn’t take very long to put together and we ended up with a really fun outdoor (or indoor) DIY corn hole game! That we all really enjoyed playing together!
