Classic playground games - 3. Beanbag toss


What you need

one or more players, chalk, beanbags (Don’t have a beanbag? Fill an old sock with rice or dried beans and knot the top.)

How to play

Draw a target (1 m) with three concentric circles. Number them one to three, the smaller the circle the greater the number. Mark a spot about three metres from the target to throw the beanbags from. Take turns throwing the beanbags; you get the points indicated in the circle the bag lands in. The player with the greatest tally at the end wins.

Fair-play tip

Decide how many turns each player gets before the points are tallied.
