This shark chum traveling bean bag toss game is perfect for SHARK WEEK, shark parties or everyday game playing fun. I made it with Kunin Felt (from my local JoAnn Store) and my fish die that I designed for Ellison Education and it is so stinkin’ darling. Check it out. You can buy the darling FISH die HERE.
How to Make the Bean Bag Toss Game
I started by cutting out 7 sets of 2 fish dies (in seven different colors).
Then I sewed them together leaving the tails open to stuff.
I made seven bean bag inserts with rice.
I stuffed the fishies and sewed them closed. I added google eyes to one side of each.
Then I made the shark. I used my shark from my licensing art portfolio as my inspiration to draw the outline. I created a mouth with teeth and and eye. I love working with felt because the pieces stay together so well when sewing!
Then I sewed it together (two shark pieces back to back) and left the top portion behind the fin open for storing the bean bag fish.
FREE Printable Shark Score Cards
I even made FREE score cards that you can download HERE.
If you want a few game variations to make it more challenging, you can…
- Attach different points to the different colored fish.
- Create a circle (ocean) around the shark and give points for fish that land in the ocean. This would work with chalk on a driveway.
- Give extra points for fish with google eyes facing up when the fish land.
Based on the score card point system, can you figure out what this turn would be worth?
If you love sharks or you are having a shark party, you can grab my Shark Week printable in my Shop Laura Kelly store.
Cheers to SHARKS and the Deep Blue Sea,
