Hi Lyn, I am glad it worked for you. It was also a very successful activity in our facility. Thank you for sharing.

Hi All,
I made some of your balloon bean bags and it was very successful. I used wheat which had been in my freezer to kill any mites/nasties.
The residents are very high care and at the time none were ambulant. One resident is 92 years young and very alert, mobilises around in his wheelchair; this resident uses the balloon ball I made to assist him with exercises for his hands and I am also going to use them for upcoming ball games. I made various sizes as well as colours. The filling varied as well more/less as this makes a difference in how they feel soft/hard. This activity certainly drew a lot of attention from all in the facility.
Cheers, Lyn

I ve alo used bird seed filling and have cut small holes in balloons so different colours show through. Can also be used for hand grip exercises.
