Today's project is a thrifty one... and quick and easy too. I love making toys for my nieces and nephews, and now for my little preschoolers too. I've made beanbags many times and they are always a hit with kids.
Start by cutting 6 inch squares of fabric.
Sew 6 inch squares of fabric together on 3 sides (you are leaving an opening for the beans!)
Turn them inside out and iron them.
Fill them up with beans, and sew them up. You can play all sorts of games with them. I've made these as Christmas gifts and put them in cute containers. In my classroom I have an old record player and an entire album of beanbag songs. Ha! Three year olds think a song about putting a beanbag on your head is just hilarious!
