Kids love games where you toss balls or bean bags, and with this activity allows the whole family to take aim at having fun!  It is always exciting to see who can score the most points, but with all participants having fun everyone’s a winner!

Get the kids moving around during their recess break. There’s even an opportunity to incorporate a little math practice into this activity! All it takes is finding a friend to play the game with.

How many points can you collect? Add up your score and see who performs best. Encourage the older kids to exercise their multiplication skills as they enter into the double digits.

Besides, spending time as a family is a great way to build confidence in kids, improve communication skills and encourage better performance in school. Lynn Lilly of the Craft Box Girls has created an easy step-by-step guide to help you follow along at home. Check out the instructions below to get started.
