Rules of the game:
Stack the cans on a table or a garden wall. You should have four cans in the bottom row, three on top of the bottom row, then two cans and one at the very top.
Make a line on the ground with twig, string, or whatever you have to hand. This means that everyone knows where to stand when launching the beanbags. If multiple age groups are playing, you may want to make several lines; one further away for the older players.
The rules can be amended as you chose. For example, you can create a penalty system for those that are just too good.
Select somebody to act as scorekeeper and take it in turns to throw the bags at the cans.
Each player gets three throws.
After each player’s turn, jot down of the total score of all three throws – one point per can.
You can play this game as individuals or in teams. When everyone has had an equal number of goes, calculate scores. The player/team with the highest score wins!
