Bean Box Treasure Hunt

We had such a fun time this week with our Bean Box!

I filled a big box with lots of pinto and black beans.
Then I hid small toys under the beans.

The girls had fun searching for the toys and mixing up the two colored beans.

After the treasure hunt, the girls played with the beans like they would in a sandbox.  They brought over spoons, cups, buckets and bottles.  They practiced pouring, filling and dumping.

Skills-feeling different textures, fine motor skills, pouring, scooping, creative play...

Then Shelli climbed in the box and started throwing the beans-working on her gross motor skills!!!


  1. Of course you would do this activity because beans are God's candy! ha ha Love it!
