We made beanbags in our den meeting this month for Amazing games. I prepped a couple of the sides, and let the boys fill them with rice and sew them up. Do you know almost every boy took them to school the next day and several have asked their moms if they can start sewing their patches on their patch blankets! Sweet! And to think that was another one of those projects I thought they would think was stupid!
Multi function if you use rice: you can throw them in the microwave, heat them up and use them as reusable hand warmers!
