Homemade bean bags are a great gift for children. Use the sleeve or leg of an old garment and then sew in pieces. I fill them with rice, not beans. They are lighter with rice and don't hurt as bad if you are hit with one.
Please be very careful with beanbags. My son's retina (part of the eye) detached and his contact broke when he was hit in the face with a bean bag one Christmas. The kids had been throwing them at each other in the basement, just for fun. Please only take them out for a bean bag toss. The eye doctor said that bean bags can cause a lot of damage to the eye because when they are thrown they mold right to the eye socket and eye.
