Beans, Beans, The Magical Fruit
This activity is simple, inexpensive, and entertaining. All you need is a large container, several packages of beans to fill the container 3/4 full, and a handful of household items that you can burry. Some ideas for “treasure items” include: an old key, a cheap piece of jewerly, play food, a kitchen tool, magnets, etc.
The rules are to keep the majority of the beans inside of the container, but I use beach towels or a large blanket to catch the beans that were “accidentally” dropped. I keep my container on hand in one of my cabinet and switch out the treasure items now and then.
It’s a great way to bring the sandbox idea indoors!
