DIY Cardboard Corn Hole Game

6 Materials
1 Hour

I made a mini corn hole game for my kids yesterday and it turned out to be so much fun. We had a tournament last night and Scout took first place... She was pretty proud of herself. This game was so easy to make and most of us have everything we need already at home.

I used two shoe boxes in the same size and cut the lids off.

Turn the box on it's side and draw a line from the top corner to the bottom corner. Do this on both sides.

Cut the sides off and then the bottom piece.

You should have a triangle shaped box that sits flat on the ground when turned over.

Trace a circle on the front and cut out with a utility knife.

Paint the box with craft paint and let dry.

I had little rice bags that we used for this game. You can always fill a sock or baggie with rice/beans to make quick bean bags for this game.

This game was so easy to make and we had a blast playing it. We only had two kids storm off mad three different times, so that's a success in my mind!
