Beanbag Toss

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Preschooler's Busy Book

Learn how to make a beanbag with your preschool child, then play a game with it!


Materials

  • 4-by-6-inch scraps of material
  • Needle and thread
  • Dried beans
  • Ziploc bag

Directions

The Ziploc bag protects the beans even if the bag gets wet.

  1. Fill a small Ziploc bag with dried beans.
  2. Sew two squares of material together on three sides, leaving a space on the fourth side big enough to slide in the bag of beans.
  3. Turn the bag inside out to hide the seams, insert the bag of beans, then sew up the space. (If you don't have time to sew a bean bag, pour beans into an old sock, knot the open end, and turn down the cuff.)
  4. Use the bean bag to play catch, or have your child toss the bag into an empty laundry basket from a few feet away.
