Well, technically the ones we made are PEA bags but that didn’t sound so good so we’ll stick with bean bags 😉 These are super easy and inexpensive to make and are perfect for indoor games as boredom busters or for parties.
To make these you’ll need felt (the cheap sheets from the craft store) / dried beans, peas or rice / packing tape or duct tape / hot glue gun.
Cut the felt into 4″ squares. You’ll need 2 squares for each bean bag.
For the “bean” inserts we used snack sized sandwich bags that I cut into 3″ squares.
The last step is to glue the edges of the felt squares with the bean inserts inside. If you wanted your kids to do this all on their own they could use duct tape to completely cover the inserts and use those as bean bags or use the duct tape for the edges of the felt. Layering the duct tape on top of itself on each corner will help.
*Always watch little ones around homemade toys like this.
