I’ve been thinking for a while that I should make some little bean bags for the kids to play with.
Little Miss has started a netball program and they often practice ball skills with little bean bags.
They are softer for indoor playing, and smaller so little hands can catch them easier than a ball.
Ours are 4″ square and I just used scraps from quilts.
I was going to fill them with dried beans or peas, but we found a big bag of large birdseeds that was heaps cheaper and means we can make lots more 🙂
The kids spent all afternoon tossing them around, and even balancing them on their heads!
EDIT: I have created a tutorial for these: Bean Bag Tutorial
