This is a fun and frugal learning activity for your little ones! Seriously this bag of beans cost me $2.60 and we can use it over and over and over again!
For our kindergartner I got him to sort the beans into like groups then count them into groups of 10.
For our pre-schooler I asked him simply to sort. This is great for fine motor skills, as well as basic counting.
We also used the beans to count by 10s.
Other Things you can use beans for:
- playing bingo
- glue them to paper and make a mosaic
- Make bean bags
- Make Maraca's out of plastic containers
It was great fun! When we were done we put the beans in a container and saved them for another day... or soup!
