Number Beanbags

These beanbags (inspired by Cheryl's @ a pretty cool life) have been on my to do list forever. I'm planning on making alphabet ones as well, but wanted to get the numbers done first since my two year old is currently obsessed with them.



I'm going to make a set for each kid, and I'll add the "+", "-" and "=" to my daughter's set since she is really into math lately.



I tried doing the numbers in white but then tried the black and liked it much better.



The kids loved the beanbags and came up with all sorts of games. They matched them to flashcards, threw them at each other while yelling the number, etc. Not quite sure what was going on with the hula-hoop here but they had a blast and asked that I please make them more.

Pati, this is such a great idea. I wish I'd had some when I was homeschooling the younger grades. We would have made up some great math games!

Thanks for linking up today.

We have number bean bags and my daughter loves tossing them. She can also clearly recognize the numbers. They grow so quickly, don't they?!
