Fruit and Vegetable Bean Bag Give Away!

















I made these fruit and vegetable bean bags for a Wellness Fair they are having at my daughter's school today. I needed three sets for a "shooting for 5 fruits and vegetables a day" bean bag toss and I am raffling one set off today just for fun. These bean bags are not sold in any stores and are only available here today!

My kids liked tossing them around and they look great in a glass bowl in the kitchen. They are kind of fun PR for eating healthy allowing picky eaters to slowly get familiar with the look of fruits and vegetables in a non threatening environment (because they aren't afraid they are going to end up on their plate!) Thisgive away is totally a late night whim. The bean bags are stuffed with lentils--and while they are not meant for human consumption--my dog actually ate a few of them. So, keep them away from your dog if you think your dog might be a fan of lentils. If you want to make your own fruit and vegetable bean bags, let me know and I will post directions.

Win it! One reader will win a set of FIVE bean bag fruits and vegetables!

This one is easy. My older son is a veggie and fruit lover.

- Spaghetti squash (great for my younger son that loves pasta but has gluten issues and oil issues)
- Tomatoes
- Carrots (they prefer raw and the big ones with "grass on top")
- Strawberries
- Pineapple

Now, my younger son is the hard one. He has a lot of sensory issues surrounding foods.

Humorously your picture partially tracks the girls' favorites: blueberries, bananas, strawberries, black beans, and peas.

Had a really great talk with your husband yesterday. He sounded stressed but good. Work travel will do that every time.

What a neat idea. We try to eat a variety of fruits & veggies. Our top ones would probably be:
1) salad greens -- spinach, lettuce, etc.
2) asparagus (esp. at this time of year)
3) oranges
4) peaches
5) zucchini
I can't wait to come back to see if I'm the lucky winner!
