Balloon bean bags

It took us awhile to get the hang of this and it was a little messy. Easy to clean-up but still messy.The easiest way we found to fill the balloon was putting the lentils in a small water bottle first, blow up the balloon slightly, put it on the end of the bottle neck and shake the lentils in. Three balloons is a good idea, when covering them watch out, they can be easy to rip with fingernails, three layers seems to be pretty sturdy.

Great instructions here, here and here

You are brave, that craft just might be beyond my patience level! I would be finding beans for weeks!
