  2. Make a Catcher
    Use an empty milk or soda bottle to make a catcher. Cut off the bottom and tape over the edge with masking tape.
  3. Play with Your Beanbags
    Take turns tossing and catching with your child. For the youngest players, you may need to stay very close. As your child’s coordination skills mature, you can move farther away from each other. Fun for all ages!
