Plastic stuffing pellets

Post by Petals » Wed Mar 13, 2013 12:42 pm

Does anybody have a reasonably cheap source of these?

I'm making a substitute for wheat bags, to be used as ice packs only (ie for bruises and bumps). The wheat bags were good but we want something that will survive getting wet and will survive long term.

I purchased a bag of bear stuffing pellets at Spotlight and it was $12.95 for 500g :faint: so I was wondering if there was a cheaper product somewhere?
