Bean bag toss on the wall!  This bean bag toss game works is easy to build and hangs on the wall with our french cleat system.  We love how it adds a decor or art element to a space.  Easy to build with our free step by step plans.

Here's another great gift build idea as part of our Handbuilt Holiday series.

For the Holiday season, Jaime Costiglio and I team up to create a new gift plan every Friday.  You can see all of our past plans here.

We love today's plan!  Its great for an older child, and can be modified easily for any sport!
