Well my new beanbags have arrived , and are working great, so I don't have to worry about making my own anymore.

Thanks for everyone's opinions on this ,

If I was you I'd cut open tennis balls and put the bean bags in them.

For future reference, make them from balloons filled with rice. If you have never heard of such, google it up, there are several places with instructions. Here is one such site: http://www.earthcapades.com/makeballs.html
P.S. It's a lot easier to put the rice in if you wrap it in plastic wrap first. And I use 1/2 cup per ball, 3/4 is a bit too big for most kids.

If you are really into practicing you might want to cover your beanbags with balloons to protect them. You just need some large ballons...cut the nipples off and work the balloon over the ball. Then put on a second balloon in the opposite direct of the first. Helps keep the beanbags looking nice and is great way to colorize your beanbags for a special event. I worked for Anderson Little (i believe) and everything had to be orange.

For future reference, you might want to check out the following:
1) Lacrosse balls. These are heavy rubber balls. They are available in colors, too. They used to be the standard for jugglers.
2) Dog toys. Some of the dog toy tennis balls from places like PetSmart are solid rubber. They are nice and heavy.
3) Cressite® dog balls. These are solid rubber and wear like iron. They are quite expensive.

The lacross balls are inexpensive, redilly availible and they come in many colors. They work well in thick grass, but unlike bean bags they will roll away from you, or even worse they can bounce around the house, and break something valuable. They work OK for bounce juggling, so over all lacross balls are a good prop with some limititations.
