Pinto Bean Letters and Numbers

ages 3-6


A bag of uncooked pinto beans.

Activity Detail

Give your child a handful of uncooked pinto beans and have them use the beans to make letters or numbers. They can develop fine motor skills as they carefully lay the beans in rows and curves.

My son is too young to write his letters with a pencil, so this activity is a great way to learn how to form the letters!

A variation of this for younger children (around 3 years old) would be to write out their name on paper first and have them place the beans on the letters you've written.

For older children, you can have them spell simple words, for younger children they can create shapes.
