Look what unexpectedly made it to the top of the House Project List!
Turns out we not only had plywood, we had something to cut out the hole!
Mostly though these were made because my husband is a 14 year old boy in a 45 year old man’s body & could not resist the lure of a game called CORNHOLE.
And the need to ask everyone at the party to come & play cornhole.
heh heh heh
He said cornhole.
The idea was a US flag & a Union Jack but there wasn’t enough blue paint so DH let the boys go to town on the other one with the random cans of spray paint we have been collecting for years. There wasn’t enough white for stars either.
Martha will address these shortcomings next year. It’s on her checklist.
I bought the beanbag thingys at Wal Mart & OMG… they were supposedly filled with ‘gravel’ but … I am more than passing familiar with many types of gravel but have never encountered the nearly weightless silica based type.
Might as well be tossing a bag with feathers in it.
So, in light of that remark we emptied out the silica and refilled each bag with a half a cup of lead birdshot #6, making each bag weigh in at a much better hefting & tossing weight of 1.5 pounds.
More dangerous too especially in young or drunk hands but I’ve been hunting for something to replace lawn darts for years & these just raise huge bruises rather than making deep puncture wounds.
So that’s ok.
Next year we’ll get a slip & slide for the hill.
