This is a great, mostly non-messy activity that keeps kids busy for a long time
- Large plastic container with lid
- dry beans (whatever is cheapest) – enought to fill bottom of conatiner and then some
- plastic beach toys; scoop, funnel, rake, cup, etc.
- kids old enough to know not to eat the beans
Put beans into container, add toys. Have kids play with the beans inside of the container.
Kids will spend hours in front of their ‘bean box’, scooping and pouring.
Clean up: Snap on lid and store bean box in a cool dry area. Sweep up run-away beans.
