Mommy School - fun with tape

The other day I pinned THIS POST on some fun games to play inside with masking tape.  The past month here has been super cold, so I've been happy to find indoor ideas to keep the boys happy.  The original post has a lot of cute ideas.  The game my boys liked the most was making a target and throwing bean bags on it.

Here's what I set up.  Then I gave them 3 bean bags each time.  It was actually great math practice for them to add up their 3 scores.

It didn't keep them happy for hours and hours or anything, but it was nice to have something that was easy to whip out during a boring afternoon.

If you do try this, I would recommend taking the tape off the same day before it gets too stuck on there. We left ours for two days and after the boys had stepped on it a lot it was pretty stuck on the carpet.  If you left is longer it might even leave a residue there.

Anyhow, do any of you have any activities you've been doing in indoors that have been a hit?  I'd love to hear about it.

Thanks for stopping by.
