I would like to make some beanbags for my grandchildren. Real beans did not work well with their parents (they got wet!). What is available now for "stuffing" and where can I buy it?

If you use rice or beans, put them into a plastic bag first. It would have to be the cheap sandwich bag without the ziplock feature. Close it with a tight yarn wrap, not a rubberband (they deteriorate). Or seal it with a proper adhesive.
