Cool Beans!

In addition to our rice box we know have a cool bean box! Vivian will be turning three shortly so I feel pretty confident that these beans wont be a choking issue. In fact, they are the perfect size for sweeping up, sorting, making magic potions.....ahhh the possibilities are endless!

What neat things are your little ones playing with?


  1. The girls love playing with beans and that is a great container...where did you get that? I am always improvising containers for the girls to play with beans/rice. I recently read about a nice idea for beans - glue 10 onto a craft stick and make counters for teaching numbers...I would love to hear what else you do.

  2. I love it!

    We're enjoying our rice box. My little one is still a toddler but he doesn't try to eat the rice so perhaps there are some beans in our future.

    @Christina....awesome idea for a counting stick. will be keeping that in mind for the future.

  3. perfect---i LOVE the box..what a great idea...ours end up n the floor...I am so going to try this!

  4. Love that idea Christina! See they are open ended toys for us too.

    The box that they are in is from Melissa & Doug. I bought two boxes of blocks and they come in those great boxes.

    The beans have managed to make their way into our play kitchen today - for bean soup of course.

    Love & Light!

  5. I love the way it feels to run your hands through beans. love, Beth
