Carrot Bean Bag

In my family, we love creating DIY games for all our get-togethers. My daughter requested a bunny birthday party this year, so together we came up with this twist on a traditional bean bag toss game. All the kids had a blast trying to feed the bunny her carrots! And now we have a game ready to go for our next Easter party.
