Well, "rice bag" would actually be more accurate, as that's what's really inside. The bag with the leftover 20 pounds of rice from the sensory rice table has been sitting on my kitchen counter for the past month or so. I keep meaning to decant it into a big 5 gallon bucket, but that would mean that I'd have to go to the garage, get a bucket, wash it... So, I've been staring at it every day as I do dishes and this weekend inspiration struck. Bean bags! Sure, they'll only use a cup or two of the rice, but hey! We need bean bags!
I cut up two old shirts of Steve's; one into 5" squares and the other into shapes. I appliqued the shapes on, sewed the squares together with a double seam to make sure the rice stayed in place and voila. The rest of the afternoon was spent lining up buckets and sharing my love of The Grand Prize Game with Silas. Awesome.
