Bean Box for Playing

21 Jul

Take a large, lidded conatiner (the larger the better). Add dry beans and scoops, cups, toys, etc. Kids will literally play for hours. Just don’t put in anything wet, and keep the cat away! (For kids old enough to not eat the beans!)  Store with lid for another day of play. Picture via

    We also added some feed corn that my father-in-law had. This corn is not the sweet corn we eat, but the stuff that cows eat.

      Great idea – my kids would play with the ‘bean box’ for hours!! Only problem is to keep the beans in the box!

    I would suppose you could use rice as well. Not sure if they make non-toxic spray paint, but if they do, you could spray paint the beans and/or rice for that natural “dirt” look. My kids are 30, but if I had little ones at home, this would be ideal!!
