A Game of Corn Hole for the Beach or Backyard BBQ’s

Corn Hole is a great summertime game that can be played at the beach, backyard barbeques, or at family picnics. Corn Hole is similar to washers and horseshoes.  The objective of corn hole is to toss beanbags across a 30-foot playing surface and land them into a hole on a wooden board.

The biggest challenge with corn hole at the beach, however, is lugging around a pair of 2×4 boards with you. After all, between all the beach blankets, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and bags that you carry to the beach each day, who really has the extra hands to carry a couple of extra games?

So, get your family’s creative juices flowing and create your own impromptu corn hole game.  Like shell horseshoes, you can create your own beach version of corn hole with objects you find on the beach, like seashells, or with items that you have brought to the beach with you, like flip-flops!

Instead of using a 2×4 board, draw a 2ft by 4ft box in the sand and dig a hole out of the top of the box.  March thirty feet across the beach and do the same thing and voila!  Instant corn hole playing field!

Just as with the games of horseshoes and washers, corn hole can be played with any members of the families.  There is no athletic ability required – maybe just bring your sense of humor to laugh at some of the errant flip-flop tosses that miss the hole by a mile!  The game can be played 1vs.1, or in teams of 2vs.2.

If playing 1vs.1, each player takes turns tossing the objects (in this case, the flip-flops) at the other hole. Each player has two flip-flops to toss at the other hole.  Whichever player either tosses a flip-flop into the hole, or lands the flip-fop in the box and is closer to the hole, wins the inning or frame.  First team to 21 wins.

As with the shell horseshoes, the game is an instant hit with the little kids too!  The kids will typically find a ton of enjoyment not only in playing the game, but in more cases than not, coming up with the idea and building the playing surface!
