Cornhole Bags - What to Look For

Cornhole bags are colored squares made from a canvas, usually duck canvas, which is made from cotton or linen, and sometimes simply known as duck if purchasing the cloth. They are usually six inches by six inches squared when made. They are made from two pieces of duck cloth sewn together to form a square. The edges are then re sewn with a seam which has been double stitched about one quarter of an inch in from the edge.

The bags are filled with corn kernels, hence the name cornbag, but they can also be filled with sand or dried beans. They can normally weigh between fourteen and sixteen ounces. When filled with dried beans they are also known as bean bags. They can be many different colors from red, green, blue, yellow, white and varying shades of these. The typical colors are red, green, blue and white.

The game of Cornhole may have originated in Germany around the fourteenth century, but resurfaced about one hundred years ago in the Kentucky hills or so it is said. It has been known as a number of other things such as Bean Bag, Corn Toss, Bean Toss, Indiana Horseshoes and Soft Horseshoes. It is similar to the game of horseshoes except there are no metal stakes, this is replaced by wooden boxes. It is played in teams and points are awarded each time a bag is thrown into the center box.

If you wanting to purchase the game of Cornhole, then there are websites on the internet which have them for sale. A good tip is to look for sites with free shipping. Stores selling toys and games may be another place to look.

Wherever they are purchased from, this is a particularly good game for young children to develop their skills of distance throwing and coordination. They will simply love the colors, and adults should have a great time as well.
