Bean Box

Fun for playtime!


  • Large plastic container with lid
  • dry beans (whatever is cheapest) – enough to fill bottom of container and then some (or dry feed corn)
  • plastic beach toys; scoop, funnel, rake, cup, etc.
  • kids old enough to know not to eat the beans

To play:
Put beans into container, add toys. Have kids play with the beans inside of the container.
Kids will spend hours in front of their ‘bean box’, scooping and pouring.
Clean up: Snap on lid and store bean box in a cool dry area. Sweep up run-away beans.
