Playing with packing peanuts



Last autumn we were given several bags of packing peanuts and I posted about crafts with packing peanuts. We still have a basket of peanuts left and they've been great for indoor play during the winter.

  3. My kids have loved those, too, although we haven't been able to get such a big supply of them at one time like you have :) It's kind of like playing in sand.

  4. Come to think of it, I used to love playing with boxes of these as a kid! We didn't call them peanuts though - think we just called them "foam package things"!
