DIY: Bean Bags (made with socks and rice)
What you will need:
Go to dollar store and buy sets of different colored socks. (Our dollarama had 3 sets of socks for $3 each. So I bought one set grey and one set black). While you’re there also pick up two 1 pound bags of plain white rice.
Total cost: $10
How to make the bean bags (rice bags):
Have the kids scoop one cup of white rice into each stock. You might need a funnel. You might not. Depends on the coordination of the kid. When the cup of rice is in the sock -> double knot the top of the sock so that nothing comes out. Done.
