My latest project has been working on the bean bag toss game. For my birthday I asked my dad to make the boards (he is a very handy woodworker and enjoys scroll sawing)and he did a great job even though he was kind of busy that week (THANK DAD!).
My mom sewed some bean bags and they are beautiful.
Then I drew the monsters I wanted to paint on in pencil (I darkened it so you can see).
After that I spray-painted the boards.
Then I learned you are not supposed to use spray paint on it because it makes it rough and you want it smooth. So I sanded it. I had already painted the body of my purple monster on before I sanded it, so he now has a little lighter hue.
I originally drew green dots on the purple monster, but I kinda think he looks like the hamburgler, so I am leaving the dots off:)
Jay will demonstrate: First you set them up.
Then you throw the bean bags in here:
And if you get bored while playing, you can always eat grass:
Here we come Monster Party!
