Finally got around to some quick sewing projects during naptime yesterday…i have been wanting to get these done for a month or so now!! Isn’t it funny how something you know won’t actually take long gets pushed aside for other ‘more important’ chores?
I have always been a big fan of beanbags for kids…..there are just so many open ended play opportunities with them for all ages. The can be thrown into boxes or hoops, through smaller openings if older, used as pillows or beds for toys, carted around as a special item because it feels nice, counted, stacked, knocked over…the options are endless with a good imagination!
They are so easy to make, no need to buy or for perfection. A really easy sewing project that makes such a thrifty toy for years to come. You can make different sizes and shapes to suit little or larger hands and purposes and fill with whatever you have on hand such as rice, beans, lentils etc!
A great ‘naptime’ project (i really love being able to complete something during naptime because otherwise it has to be put aside to finish another day which often never arrives!) I used scrap fabric from winter pants i made the toddler twosome last season…..
While i had the scrap material out i also made a drawstring bag to keep bread and bread rolls in for the breadbox. I currently use a ziplock bag which has to be thrown after a week really so wanted something i could reuse. I don’t think it will keep the bread as fresh but as we go through a loaf a day that isn’t really a concern. Just need to make sure the bread is cool before putting into the bag or it will go soggy.
Have you completed any little projects during naptime recently? I’d love to hear about them!
Thanks for stopping by…have a great weekend all!
