We love this easy DIY sensory bags and bins with white beans, because they are great for sensory toddler activities at home! Got some white beans? You can prepare a delicious bean soup and then take out a few and do some pretty cool things with and for your little one!
These sensory bags can be transformed to sensory bin in a minute! And they are a great solution for everyone, who is wondering how to make homeschooling more fun? Try out these 5 white beans sensory activities at home! Set them up as a sensory bag or sensory bin and let your toddler and preschooler practice counting, measuring, sorting, logic, addition and subtraction. Each child learns differently, but one thing is for sure, if learning is fun – they will remember it longer, so unschool at your homeschool and hands-on learning on!
White Beans provide not only more bioavailable iron than red beans, they are also are great for all kinds of fine motor and sensory activities.
The best thing about them – they are so versatile! From honey bees through piggies to baby sharks, you and your child can paint the white beans in anything you desire!
And it so easy to create them!
What you need is:
- Few dry white beans
- Nail polish in different colours
- Permanent Marker – black.
- A clear resealable plastic ziploc bag.
- Filling: Water, for sensory bins – white or brown rice or pasta.
- Disposable gloves. I use for example simple latex gloves.
- Put the gloves on and place the beans on a sheet of paper or paper towel in front of you.
- Paint the one side of a bean with the nail polish and wait until dry.
- Afterwards, draw the animal or whatever you like.
- That’s it! Your beans are ready to go!
