Counting Beans

ages 2-4


Container filled with beans, baking tray, muffin tins, cups, spoons, etc...

Activity Detail

Keep a plastic container filled with different beans -- all colors and sizes. On a rainy afternoon, spread out a sheet or blanket on the floor and pour the beans out on a baking tray on the sheet. Give your toddler different cups, spoons, muffin tins to move, sort, count, and compare beans. You can make observations about numbers, sizes, textures, colors... the variations are endless!

My kids love pouring/measuring and dumping, so they had a good time.

Beans are a great choice for this activity, but you could really use any small items that you have on hand -- buttons, pasta, jelly beans, etc.
