Free Toys Tuesday

I meant to write this 2 days ago, but got busy. We were cleaning our food cabinet and found that I had lots of bags of dried beans. Lots! I am not skilled enough to cook them and will have my mom cook a batch for me from time to time. I decided to make some bean bags to surprise the kids so I used an old pair of tights, got a big box and cut some holes in it, wrote point values by the holes and set it up in the dining room. The next morning they got up and started a rousing game of bean bag toss, keeping score and taking turns. I never said a word and they just played together for almost an hour. Good math, good fun.....Free!
