Kids Happy With Their Homemade Giant Bean Bag Chairs

Since we rearranged our home yet again. We took the loveseat out of our living room and moved it into another room in our home. As a result, the kids needed a place to curl up and watch TV without being forced to squeeze on the couch like a bunch of sardines. So, my mother-in-law knew we wanted a bunch of bean bag chairs. She decided to make them for our kids.

It took a team effort to stuff the bean bag chair full of stuffing. What you decide to stuff the chairs with is up to you, but we choose the pellets for Delbert’s bean bag chair. It took everyone pitching in to get them in the bag. I still had them all over the living room when we were done, but it was well worth it.

We over filled it, and when Del got home he decided to fix it. He stated the bean bag[egg id=”8″] wouldn’t shape to Delbert’s impressions because we over filled it. We had to take some of the stuffing out, and he had to resew it back together.

Since he helped fix it, he had to enjoy a few minutes of leisure on it. Delbert couldn’t resist getting on it with his Daddy. It made for some laughs in our household.

Zeva loves hers as well. I think hers is the cuter one of the two, but that may be because it looks more girly. I love the color choices on hers.

Can you tell he’s one happy camper in his? He loves his bean bag chair with a passion.

    • Thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚ They are very cute when they are being good. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am quite pleased with the bean bag chairs too. I’m eagerly waiting mine. Jimmy has to get his first. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Hi, found your article on Saturday Share. Sounds like an awesome idea to try. So easy, yet I didn’t even think of it!

  2. What a great idea to make your own bean bag chairs! Other then the time it takes to stuff them it really wouldn’t be difficult. The best part is if your chair starts to sag–just add more filling. What a money saver!

    • It is a money saver for sure. Honestly, it didn’t take long to fill them with all of us pitching in to do it. We literally were taking turn holding it and filling it.

  3. They do look really happy! I would probably be sleeping on it all day if I had one! lol! Looks really relaxing!

    • She did a remarkable job making them. We have gotten a lot of use out of them. Zeva by far though has been the most used by all of the family members including the animals.

  4. I always wanted a giant bean bag chair as a kid! I thought they were the coolest thing. I hope to get one for my toddler when he’s a little older and can appreciate it and utilize it properly.

  5. How cool is this???? I’m newly single, and we just moved into a new apartment. We don’t have a lot of furniture yet, but I have tons of scrap material and old sheets! I bet my kids would LOVE this!

    • I’m sure they would too. We created these mainly because at one time my living room was also our classroom too. We had to make a place for them to sit, and this was a great way to do that.
