Ever notice how kids can have tons of fun with the simplest of things? Well it doesn't get much simpler than some of the hubs old work jeans, dry beans, a needle & thread.
This is just one of the upcycled bean bags I made for the kids. There was no way any of them were going to give theirs up. (Even if just for a picture.)
They've played hop scotch, hide & seek, bucket toss & a few other made up games today. But the best part is, that they'll serve as another craft some other day when the kids get to paint & personalize them.
•squares of fabric cut from old clothing (make sure it's not worn through)
•needle & thread
•Working with fabric squares inside out, sew together 3 sides & partial of the 4th (you want to make sure you have plenty of room to turn your square inside right). Don't forget to double stitch on your starting & ending points.
•Fill between 2/3 & 3/4 full with dry beans.
•Folding rough edges in, carefully stitch opening shut making sure to double stitch on your starting & ending points.
