I recently made an I-spy bag for my kids. I know it's not original, but I wanted to show it off! It measures about 9" square and the window is about 6". I lined the bag with flanel to make it stronger and stuffed it with split peas, brown rice and lentils.

Here are photos what went into the bag (my kids are only 1 and 3 years old so I had to put in a few larger items!



And here is the finished bag:


Thanks for looking Q&C&C welcome.  Smiley

Wow!  That is awesome!  I have to admit, I'd never heard of these before, but now I'm inspired to try making one for the little ones in my life.

These are a great idea. I love your take on them for really little kids.

Also, a top idea using little erasers (I'm learning not to call them 'rubbers' on Craftster because American types have a different meaning for that word...  Cheesy). You can get a great variety of shapes and they're nice and durable.

I love that you filled it with lentils, split peas and brown rice. It's makes for a much more colorful bag.  It's adorable!

It's amazing Cheesy never seen this, except for a book that has fishies that move, almost the same but not as fun for small children

Way cute!  The fillers are great and the fabrics you used are so bright and cheerful they really add to the feeling of fun!  What terrific gifts these would make for any child . . . or child-at-heart!
