Charter Schools and Hacky Sacks

We have my niece here today and besides playing with puppies and marbles, we had a blast making beanbag balls! My June 2006 issue of Family Fun had the idea of taking 2-3 balloons, cutting the lip off and using a funnel to fill the first with beans (we used lentils). Once it’s as full as you can get it, take the second balloon and stretch it open wide enough to slip it over the bean-filled one. Then stretch that second balloon’s neck way out and cut it near the first balloon…it will leave a nice round shape and show off the two colors. They’re homemade hacky sacks. The girls had so much fun they made them till our balloon supply ran out.

My floor was covered with lentils, but hey, fun times=messes.

    And can I ask…why’d ya move?
