Instructions for Filling:
FILLING IDEAS: sand, beans, lentils, rice, kitty litter, aquarium pea gravel, gravel or river rock. Total Weight Needed:
This varies based on indoor (like 8-10 lbs) or outdoor (? 20 lbs.). Some people use up a whole bag of play sand. For outdoor windy days, you can use more than one bag on a stand. Where to Buy Filling:
HARDWARE STORE: Play sand, pea gravel, granite, river rock
GROCERY STORE: Kitty litter (the cheap kind), beans, lentils, rice + zip-loc bags :-)
DEPARTMENT STORE: Play Sand, aquarium pea gravel
PET STORE: Aquarium pea gravel
BEACH: free sand
To fill, measure your filling into quart zip-lock bags & then pour into the opening. This will help you a) avoid the mess of trying to scoop directly into the opening & b) help you balance both sides with equal quantities. Note: Some users even just put the whole ziploc inside. This sounds useful if you want to occasionally adjust the weight by removing or adding a bag.
Variations: Some people just slip a 500ml water bottle into each side pocket. That sounds like a great on-the-go or ad-hoc idea. Other possibilities: Two cans of food. Weightlifting weights.
