It’s Spring—Head Outside for a Game of Cornhole

People are heading outside to enjoy the beauties of nature. It’s time to fire up the barbecue and enjoy time in the backyard or at local parks. If you’re planning an outdoor event, don’t forget to include a game of cornhole. Cornhole brings people together for hours of fun and friendly competition.

Cornhole is fast becoming a favorite among Americans. The game is simple, and the rules are easy to learn. You don’t have to be a pro. Anyone can pick up a cornhole bag and give it a good toss. If you’re interested in setting up a tournament, you will need two cornhole boards and eight corn bags.

Cornhole is no respecter of ages—even young children can play. In fact, it teaches kids good concentration and aim as they try to get their bag in the designated hole. Tossing a corn bag involves a simple but important motion that can help prepare kids to excel in other sports.

Cornhole is also low-maintenance. There’s no fancy equipment to haul back and forth—just the bags and the boards, which can be easily transported from home to a desired destination.

The game is also highly flexible and can be played in most any venue: the backyard, an empty lot, a park, the driveway, or even in the basement in the case of inclement weather. Cornhole is relatively inexpensive. There’s an initial expenditure for the boards, of course, but to save money, people can make their own cornhole boards out of wood and even sew their own bags. If you take good care of your equipment, it can last for years to come, making cornhole a smart investment.
