Beans

We've been in search of more indoor activities.  With chances of snow this coming week and temps below freezing in the morning, it's time to start stocking up on crafts and fun toys!  We regularly play with play-doh, crayons, window markers and I recently bought some finger paints that I have yet to break out.  If you have fun ideas, make sure to share them with us! :)

This week we played with some dry beans that I had in the cupboard.  We started off with 1/2 a bag of lentils, moved to 1/2 a bag of kidney and ended with 1/2 a bag of lima beans.  I just dumped the beans into a bowl that was placed in a cake pan, gave him a cup, a spoon and a measuring cup.  He enjoyed just letting the beans slip through his fingers, scooping, stirring, dumping and tasting.  We managed to play with the beans for almost an hour.  That's an eternity in toddler world! We'll pull out all the beans again later this week. :)  Great thing about the beans is the cleanup is easy, just sweep and toss!  My kind of project!
