Actually, this post could be “Need new toys for your grandchildren when they come to visit?” or “Need a new product to sell at the next craft fair?”, but sometimes it seems like the toy corner of a customer waiting area gets pretty skimpy! Not many toys, and the ones you have available are over used and starting to come apart. Well, here’s new idea for toys.
I ran across a tutorial at AVeryRedKitchen.blogspot for making alphabet beanbags out of old t-shirts. Check out this picture:
Katie has done a wonderful job of putting together a tutorial for these alphabet bean bags. She has capital letters on one side and lower case letters on the other side.
After making a set of these bean bags, you can put a small basket in one corner and let the kids play! I have tons of old t-shirts that have been “begging” to be recycled into something useful! Looks like I can use the bodies of the t’s for a project and the sleeves for the alphabet bean bags. Thanks a million, Katie for this great tutorial!
