I've found lots of cute ideas on Pinterest. Some are more practical than others. I've seen a few great games that I might try to incorporate if I can make them. One game that he likes is bean bag toss. I think he likes it more for the materials than the actual game. For his Mario party last year I made a boo ghost toss that was a huge hit. Making it a Skylanders affair is a particular challenge.
One of the things that Colson loves to do in the video game is find the little sheep wandering around. You can abuse them in all kinds of funny ways (setting them on fire, knocking them around, static shocking them, and smashing them). I knew I wanted to find a way to put the sheep into the game play and I decided that making sheep bean bags would be a fun way to do that. Now my only problem is finding something to throw them in to. Since they get hit, throwing isn't really their thing. Colson had an interesting idea tonight. He wanted to know if I was going to make a Stump Smash to toss them onto. Perhaps I can build a hammer type box thing.....? This could get hairy. :)
Here are my (smashed) sheep bean bags.
