Stuffing for Bean Bags

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?

I use sand to stuff mine with. Make sure your stitches are as small as possible.

Try using aquarium gravel. It's clean and won't be affected by water.

Try using long grain rice to fill bean bags. Rice gives it enough weight to through but not too much weight that even a young child can use it. Also if the seam does happen to break open and the child playing with them still had the habit of putting things in their mouth the risk of chocking on the rice is very slim.

It is an inexpencive substitute to beans. Rice can be washed in the washing machine just remember to wash in cold water and let air dry.

Wouldn't aquarium gravel be sharp?

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.
