No-Sew “Bean” Bags

I have lots of fond memories of bean bag toss games from when I was a child so I wanted to have some at home for the kids to play with. Not to mention they are super versatile and can be used for a variety of indoor and outdoor games.

They are not cheap to buy, but luckily are super easy to make yourself! All you need is:

Hot glue gun
Craft felt
Sandwich bags
1/2 cup rice per bag
Packing tape
Scissors

🟥DIY No-Sew “Bean” Bags with Rice!🟧 I have lots of fond memories of bean bag toss games from when I was a child so I wanted to have some at home for the kids to play with. Not to mention they are super versatile and can be used for a variety of indoor and outdoor games. They are not cheap to buy, but luckily are super easy to make yourself! All you need is: Hot glue gun Craft felt Sandwich bags 1/2 cup rice per bag Packing tape Scissors I cut my felt into 5.5” squares and set them aside. I filled each sandwich bag with 1/2 cup of rice (you can use dried beans or dry pasta) and folded in a square and taped it down. If there is an air bubble in the bag, just use scissors to pop the bubble and tape over it. Place it in the center of the square and use hot glue to glue each side and press down to ensure proper alignment. I’ve made them with tacky glue as well, but it doesn’t dry as fast and you’ll want to be able to play with these ASAP! If they get dirty just wipe clean with a damp cloth. And don’t leave them outside when it rains…nature finds a way to the rice, and let’s just say these are our second batch! • • • #preschoolactivities #toddlercrafts #athomelearning #kidscrafts #learningthroughplay #outdooractivitiesforkids #indoorplay #storytime #feltcrafts #earlylearning #preschoolathome #kindergartenready #prekactivities #storytime #teachermom #librariansofinstagram
