Valentine's Day Heart Toss

Good morning, lovelies!
I truly hope each one of you is doing well :)

I thought I would show you a fun game I made for my son to play on Valentine's Day.
I gathered up 6 cans, felt, rice, and voila!
I had a game ready. . .with some preparation, of course.


Here is what I did. . .

I collected the cans and then I cut strips of felt to wrap around each one.


I glued on hearts since it's for Valentine's Day :)


I cut out 6 squares of felt to make 3 small toss bags which were about 2.5 inches in size 
(small enough to go in the can) and filled each one with rice.



Here is the fun part...

I cut out circles to write something special on them like, "One piece of Valentine's candy"
and glued the circles onto the bottom of the cans.



Now when my son tosses a rice bag into a can 
he will be surprised by the message on the bottom.


This isn't just for kids,
you could always have some fun with your spouse or friends :)


Enjoy, sweet friends!
