preschool play: bean bags

i made up these bean bags for miss p to play with while doing preschool activities. i love bean bag toss games and they can be used for other things as well (e.i. i think i will eventually make more and use them to represent the planets in the solar system when we talk about that...)

p loves them (isla loves them too, but we can't let her play with them, because they would probably start to sprout given the way she plays with things.) p even helped me fill the bags with black beans. it was messier, but fun to involve her.

for the pattern i simply used a cereal bowl and traced around it onto my selected fabrics. i put right sides together and stitched around the edges, leaving open a 2 in. opening to flip the bag and then fill them through. i hand stitched the opening and they were done! they all took maybe 20 min.
