All Cornhole Bag #Review


I am beginning to become very much a minimalist in regards to toys and wholesome entertainment for my children.  Of course my kids have all these awesome toys and they play with them, but most are played with a couple times and then ignored.  We have toys in both kids bedrooms, a playroom full and of course our living room.  There are a TON of toys and about 1/16th are actually played with. 

I have become a HUGE fan of toys that are simplistic and have multiple uses.  Enter the All Cornhole Bags...not just for cornhole!  These fit the bill for simplicity and also get my kids outside and learning to be a strategist as well as refining those motor skills.  I was sent a set of cornhole bags after the company saw how much Eyan enjoyed playing cornhole camping.  

Cornhole is a great game and all but honestly there are just SO many games you can play with these adorable and functional bean bags that I was pretty excited to just get my hands on them and have some fun.  Basically my supplies for the day were just items that we had around the house; sidewalk chalk, some dump trucks and some mama time with her favorite boy.  Here are a few of the games that we played!


TIC-TAC-TOE
  • We started our day playing Tic-Tac-Toe which was awesome for Eyan to learn some strategy and figure out how to beat mama.  I didn't let him win all the games though, gotta keep teaching this boy some skills!  This was probably one of his favorites of the day and we sat and played for about 25 minutes before he wanted to try other games!



TARGET PRACTICE
  • Target practice was very frustrating for Eyan at first, but after a few times of cheering him on and showing him how close he was to the target he started to get really excited.  This was his first BULLSEYE!  The kid was elated and we may have had a popsicle break after this one. 



HOPSCOTCH
  • So I set up Hopscotch and then realized I drew it wrong and that I couldn't remember how to play!  I actually had to Google the darn rules.  We played this for a bit but Eyan wanted to get to the next game quickly, I will say that by this time the cornhole bags had been beaten, covered in dirt and chalk and were still in great shape.



DUMP TRUCK TOSS
  • Dump truck toss was SO fun!  Eyan loved this game.  He tossed and tossed and tossed those cornhole bags until he got one truck completely full and then he drove that truck around the grass and dumped all the bags and then played again.  It was great for him to play like that.  I was slightly surprised at how difficult it was actually to get the bags into the dump trucks, but my son became quite the pro!


The little games above were fantastic for Eyan and I and really helped him hone some skills that an iPad or TV could not have given him.  I truly enjoyed the 2 hours that Eyan and I got to spend bonding, playing, laughing and competing.  My sweet little man is just awesome.

The cornhole bags are also pretty awesome.  The designs are SO cool.  I picked the mustache and polka dots wedding set and these were exactly what I was hoping for.  The material is sturdy (which is great with my kids), the stitching is well done, the designs are fantastic and there is a design out there for ANYONE!  Oh and the prices are super reasonable.

All Cornhole does not just sell cornhole bags.  They offer a variety of cornhole accessories as well as other games for family fun.  The company had fast shipping and was great to work with.

I hope you check them out for some quality family friendly games!
