Are you feeling the winter blues, yet!? Thankfully it only got frigid cold here in SC for 2 days and then it was rather warm again! That meant we could go to the zoo and play outside for longer than 15 minutes! We are having a really mild winter and I LOVE IT! However it still gets pretty cold or it rains and with the cold, I am looking for activities to keep my little toddler and I happy and entertained!
I've been wanting to try out having a Bean Box for quite some time, but wasn't sure if Cai was ready yet! Then, my real life friend Anne at Hello Newman's gave her little girl a Bean Box for Christmas and she has loved it! I decided to give it a try today!
Our bean box is really simple. Just a smaller sized bin full of an assortment of beans. I think I used about 6 bags in my bin. I filled it with different sized scoops and containers. Cai LOVED it. I mean LOVED it!
An easy remedy is a beach towel or blanket under you. Assuming your toddler doesn't throw the beans, you should be able to scoop it all up and dump back in your bin!
