Pour some dry lentils into the balloon through the funnel.

Keep squishing the lentils down into the balloon and make room for some more

Cut the neck off the balloon.
Cut the neck off the next balloon and stretch over the first lentil filled balloon. You'll need to give it a good stretch to get it around and you should have the open end facing a closed side of your second balloon.

Your balloon bean bag ball is ready to play with. These are fun to learn throwing and catching skills and would be perfect to juggle with.

Balloon pieces are a hazard to young children so remember to bin any left over pieces and always supervise young children when playing.
