Spilling the Beans About Inexpensive Ideas to Keep Your Kids Entertained This Winter: A Guest Post

As a mama to quadruplets, I’m always looking for activities to entertain my active 2 year olds. With winter approaching, we all need inexpensive indoor activities to keep us sane this season, right? Thanks to Clair for allowing me to share a few ideas as a guest blogger that I keep in my back pocket to creatively break up the monotomy.

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!
