I do not know about you but where do all our socks go? especially Little Boos, I have an ever increasing pile of odd socks, so set to work to think of something useful for them. Whilst cooking the tea I had inspiration, lets make them into bean bags . Little Boo just recently has started to really enjoy playing football and throwing the ball. I also knew that I had a stash of popcorn kernels and various seeds which had gone out of date, they had been used previously for a pouring activity but I knew they would work to make the bean bags.
|The pile of odd socks or ones that are too small.|
|Turn the sock inside out .|
|Fill with seeds of your choice|
|squash the seed down then place an elastic band around, fold over the remaining top section of sock|
|The completed bean bags they look really pretty.|
|Daddy did some juggling|
|Little Boo made up her own game trying to throw the bean bags into the peg basket|
|We then had to try and knock the ball out the square with the bean bags.|
|Then Little Boo and Daddy had a competition who could be first at throwing the bean bag at the letter Mommy calls out. The letters used were those in Little Boos name as I want to get her familiar with these first.|
|Then we had to throw the bean bags at the correct shape|
|After all that fun it was time to pack away and count the bean bags back into the basket.|
Hope that you enjoy that activity. Have you reused socks to make something?
