toddler fun activity with beansThings you’ll need:

  1. A box or a small bath tub ( lying around in the house)
  2. 4-5kgs of rice, dried beans ( I used jowar grains as they are one of the cheapest)
  3. A few cups, scoops, and toys from around the house.

Fill the tub with beans and use cups of different sizes/colors so you could talk about scooping beans in large cups / small cups/ green color cups/red color cups.

You could also hide his small toys in the grain and ask him to search for it. This activity can keep your child entertained for hours.

PS – Spread a large cloth on the floor before starting the activity, so it is easy to wind up the small beans at the end.
