Toss Across is a tic tac toe game that is played by throwing bean bags at the squares which turns them over to reveal X’s and O’s.
You throw the bean bags, and if they hit the square on one side an X would be turned over, but if you hit it on the other side, and O would be turned over. You have to be careful that you don’t turn over your opponent’s symbol and win the game for him.
The great thing about this game is that it can be played in many different positions to work on strengthening different parts of the body.
You can play it standing up and work on squatting to get the bean bags to toss. You can play it in quadruped to work on upper extremity strengthening. You can work sitting on a bolster or bench, prone over a bolster or ball, on a scooter board, in a wheelchair, on a platform swing, in a net swing. I feel like I am quoting Dr. Seuss. You can play it in a box with a fox. I do not like it Sam I Am. I do not like green eggs and ham.
The versatility of this game is what makes it so great.
