  • Simple-Bean-Bags-1

Step One

Gather your supplies- I used a craft pack of gray Oly-Fun & Poly Pellets

  • Simple-Bean-Bags-2

Step Two

Using a pen & ruler draw 4″ squares on your Oly-Fun, I wanted my bean bags to be smaller so 4″ was the perfect size. Feel free to make them 5″ or 6″ or even bigger for your needs.

  • Simple-Bean-Bags-3

Step Three

Cut out your squares- you will need 2 squares per bean bag.

  • Simple-Bean-Bags-4

Step Four

Sew 2 squares together by sewing all the way around the edges at 1/4″ seam allowance. Leave an opening of 2″ to fill the bean bag.

Step Five

Fill the bean bag with poly pellets. I used a funnel to help. Fill it about 3/4 of the way full with enough room so that you can still push the pellets away from the open edge and sew it closed.

Step Six

Sew the open seam closed and Voila! you are finished and ready to use them in a fun bean bag toss game! We made this death star game for my son’s 5th birthday party.
