DIY Beanbag Toss

In preparation for Mr. S's big day next week, we are starting to work on some activities.  Tonight, it was beanbag toss time!  I used an old box and two sleeves to make this project.  I used a sewing machine, but you could even do this by hand.
1.  Get the two sleeves:
 2. Trace Circles:
 3. Sew just inside the traced line.  Since this was a jersey fabric, it was easier to sew first and then cut instead of cutting first.  Remember to leave a small opening to add the "beans":
4. Here are the bags all cut out:
 5.  Bad picture, but this is a make-your-own funnel out of old paper and I'm pouring small pasta (all we had) into the bag.  About 2/3 full:
 6.  Sew up small opening:
 7.  Done with bags!:
 8. Find an old box or sheet of cardboard.  It could even be a small box because you could set this game on a table:
 9.  Cut 3 circles (BE CAREFUL).  We chose three different sizes and used a utility knife:
 10.  Decorate it, if you want -- different points depending on which circle, etc!!
